[erlang-questions] Did Erlang's grammar change in R16A?
Thu Feb 14 20:03:56 CET 2013
As I understood it, dots are legal in unquoted atom names. This
appears not to be the case in R16A. Is this intentional?
Erlang R15B03 (erts-220.127.116.11) [source] [smp:8:8] [async-threads:0]
Eshell V18.104.22.168 (abort with ^G)
Erlang R16A (erts-5.10) [source] [smp:8:8] [async-threads:10] [hipe]
Eshell V5.10 (abort with ^G)
* 1: syntax error before: '.'
Kai Janson noticed this because the "mongodb" package fails to compile
under R16A due to a syntax error on an atom with a dot in it.
I couldn't find any mention of changing the grammar in the README. Is
this a bug?
