Thanks, Allin. That made me think of a related thing; consider the
following pseudo script:
If I run it, nothing happens. OK, I don't expect any (printed) output,
but wouldn't it maybe be better to throw an error if an end-of-file is
reached before the loop is completed with endloop?
Yes, it would be better. That's now in git.
