Menta Warning: Syntax error

Issue

Naming a point in Menta results in a pop up error

Warning
Syntax error

Environment

Menta

Cause

Special characters are not permitted in the names of Menta signals.

Resolution

Remove all of the following characters from the Menta signal name:

  • space
  • . period, ? question mark
  • - dash (hyphen)
  • !, @, #, $, %, ^, &, *, (, )
  • \ backslash denotes the Menta module name separated from the Menta signal name. One is permitted, the second will cause a syntax error

The best rule to go by is to use nothing but alpha-numeric characters and (_) underscores in Menta naming conventions.
