Bug in Paragraph Chunk

Post by Peter Wood » Sun May 25, 2014 12:48 am

The new paragraph chunk returns empty when the string being chunked does not contain the end of paragraph mark.

In the message box

Code: Select all

put "The cat sat on the mat. The mat was on the floor." & return & "my second paragraph" into tText
put "***" & the first paragraph of tText & "***"
Result

Code: Select all

******
Line still works as expected

Code: Select all

put "The cat sat on the mat. The mat was on the floor." & return & "my second paragraph" into tText
put "***" & the first line of tText & "***"
Result

Code: Select all

***The cat sat on the mat. The mat was on the floor.***
I have filed bug number 12527
