IF X THEN INC X,5UNSHIFT Y$,"A"
Perfectly legal, executable code. You do not need to include the space (or colon) after the number 5 because the parser handles it.
IF X THEN INC X,5ELSE UNSHIFT Y$,"A"SYNTAX ERROR
The phrase ELSE is not even highlighted. Same goes for ELSEIF.
Not sure if this could truly be classified as a bug, but it would seem to go against my preconceived notions of SB syntax highlighting, and SB syntax in general.
#2✎ 157NathanielSpring 2017 Contest WinnerI won the SmileBASIC Source Spring 2017 Contest!Programming ContestHelperReceived for being very helpful around SmileBASIC SourceAchievementsStaff Pick"Your program is one of our favorites!" - StaffAchievementsThis isn't a bug. E's are weird in SmileBASIC's code. The "E" in "ELSE" changes the format of the "5".
#3✎ 146712Me21AdminSyntax HighlighterReceived for creating the code syntax highlighter on SBSNight PersonI like the quiet night and sleep late.Express YourselfSecond YearMy account is over 2 years oldWebsiteIt's because when an E is after a number, it expects another number after the E, like 1E5 (10000), 1.5E-3 (.0015), 1.1E+2(110), etc.
What they should've done is just not group the E with the number when it's invalid, but I guess they expected people to always use colons to separate lines of code.

Programming StrengthDrawingI like to draw!HobbiesReadingI like to read books!HobbiesI've always seen people use that sort of scientific notation when writing example code here. I thought it was just a human, short hand notation, not an actual SB syntax supported function.
That's really interesting to know.
