Hi !

I am just reading 
http://www.erlang.se/doc/doc-5.4/doc/reference_manual/part_frame.html

Using a slight modified version from chapter


      6.10 Receive



%%%-------------------------------------------------------------------
%%% File    : test.erl

-module(test).
-export([test/0]).


test() ->
    receive
        onhook ->
            io:format("onhook~n");
   
        {connect, B} ->
        io:format("connect~n");      <-----
    after
        60000 ->
        io:format("timeout ~n")       
    end.


Trying to compile I get
erlc -W +warn_unused_vars +nowarn_shadow_vars +warn_unused_import 
+debug_info -o../ebin test.erl
./test.erl:19: syntax error before: 'after'
./test.erl:9: function test/0 undefined


removing the ;  before after it works.



regards


Dietmar
