Hi,

I have just moved over to using 1.8 and on a previously working script 
I now get

@field = getField (line)
warning: don't put space before argument parentheses

but later on
out << "some string".gsub (/[\s\n]*$/, "")
                                            ^                      
(under the first /)
  syntax error (SyntaxError)

Removing the space gets rid of the syntax error or changing the << 
operator to a += give a warning.

I personally like to have the space before an argument parenthesis, but 
it seems odd that in one place it deserves a warning and in others it 
gets an error.

Dave.
