Subject RE: [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-33320) Falcon doesn't allow multiline member access
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2012 18:30:42 GMT
I agree. non required semicolons that should end statements don't help  
in the AS3 grammar either (for solving ambiguities like this).


Quoting Gordon Smith <gosmith@adobe.com>:

> reason we're changing the metadata syntax in AS4!) I don't remember
