Hi there,

while working with Titanium Mobile 0.8.2 (OSX 10.5.8, iPhone-SDK 3.1.2) i could use these doc-coments (@var/@return etc) without problems, but suddenly the execution of my code stopped without any message whatsoever. It turns out the problem was a doc-comment in a prototype. A snippet to illustrate:

function XXX()

/* * @var date / this.thing = null;


does fine, while

function XXX()

/* * @var Date / this.thing = null;


does not.

I'm not sure if i'm using the "correct" way to anotate my code, but since it's inside a comment-block i tend to say it's an error. Correct me if i'm wrong, otherwise i hope its helpful to you and others.

    narg :),

        * @var Date
       this.thing = null;

    May not still be valid. Will have to R&D.

    Quick test proves that my hunch was correct. Likely invalidated in the switch to 0.9.

    Closing as invalid.
