FUNCTION UFNprintText(printText$ AS STRING )

Sometimes the function will just crash the ZX Spectrum emulator

Adding a RETURN 0 makes it work.

Just thought you might know this?

1) What version are you using?

2) For functions like the above that return numbers, not putting a return will return a random (undefined value) but should never crash the program. If it does, please post a code snippet here to track it. Cool

1) 1.14.1

2) Well I tried to write a small .BAS program to reproduce it but it does not break !
The Function does not return any value 
The output of the compiler generates this error so it seems it needs a value regardless?
aTest5.bas:16: warning: [W190] Function 'buildVocab' should return a value

This is not a big thing for me as now I simply had a RETURN 0 for functions that don't return a value.

One thing I wonder if returning String Arrays is on the cards sometime soon?
Thank you

This is a warning, not an error. For the moment it's just that. In the future, compiling with --strict will issue an error and the program won't compile unless you supply a return value.
