in thread When writing code for end users, what operator error surprises you the most?

Or if you prefer, there is another story along these lines.

In national parks such as Yellowstone, the campers use bear proof containers to keep their food in, and designers trying to make better ones.

Their effors are frustrated by the fact that some of the smarter bears have more intelegence than the dumber campers.

[Eily]: Discipulus try looking at $@
[Eily]: or count the parentheses :)
[Discipulus]: stupid me! I had to stay at home and do not code with the flu..
[holli]: bacause it's a syntax error
[Discipulus]: yes sorry forget and forgive me
[Eily]: for what it's worth I didn't go for the brightest solution either
[Eily]: I tried print eval '2+1/3*(2+2/5))' or print $@
[Eily]: and therefore concluded that the eval did succeed because there was no printed error :P
[Eily]: stupid operator precedence :D
