Let me connect these words to the subject:

"It's a real _strange_ feature"

These "strange feature" is much more confusing with the following lines:
IDL> print, "877" 
877 
IDL> print, "777" 
 
print, "777" 
            ^ 
% Syntax error.

It seems that IDL likes the one-notation-two-actions thing. I must say
that such a thing is confusing me. I hope I will not loose too much time
in trying to understand all the IDL's "strange feature".

Later.
