# Not compiling: V8.5.17-36-g3b75b6560

I get the following error with V8.5.17-36-g3b75b6560:

``````\$ ninja clean && ninja

strangely enough, if I do `ninja` after that it works, very strange.

That error message seems to be typically caused by a missing parameter to a TeX macro. E.g., `\cfuncref{foo}` instead of `cfuncref{foo}{}`.

If you re-run the command at the terminal, you might get a traceback that shows the string that caused the problem.

Thanks Peter, don’t get any additional errors from running on the command line except what is above:

``````ERROR: /tmp/swipl-devel/build.release/home/library/quasi_quotations.pl:266:

It was a rather weird puzzle. Fixed by d778c9d88057468fc6060571cdf81648176da363. Thanks.
