Description Abe Jakop 2014-12-22 16:05:39 UTC
For a future --compatible=VERSION, for [u]sym* tapset functions, instead of returning a hex version of the parameter, functions should throw catchable errors.
Comment 1 Frank Ch. Eigler 2015-06-19 16:23:31 UTC
on second thought, the hex fallback seems about right: that's pretty much what forseeable uses of a nested try/catch block would want to do.
