Hi John,

me too (current version: 2014.05.21 22:04 ;-)) and both samples (above
and below) compile fine.

Are you sure that character encoding in your file is utf8?

I can cause this error message, but only after replacing character
encoding in file with ISO 8859-15.

BTW, your file is in /usr/local. I thought that in Unix there was no
place like /home :-).

I hope it helps,


Pablo
