What does "ERR:SYNTAX" mean?
This probably the most common error message you will receive when you're making your programs. This is because it is so easy to make a programming syntax error. When you receive this message, go down to 2:Goto and see where the cursor stops. The point where the cursor stops is most likely the spot where you made the syntax error. A syntax error could occur because of misplaced functions, arguments, parentheses, or commas. You might have accidentally put to commas right next together. If you can't figure out what the problem is, go to the Index of Commands page in on this site and look up the command(s) used on the line where the syntax error is. In the explanation of how that command is used, there will be the proper syntax of how the command used. If there isn't, then click on the link to the tutorial where the command is used and you should see either at the beginning or in the codes, how the command is properly used.
