Error function returns invalid value (message).
Return value must be error message (string) which corresponds to its error code.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Input the following macro on IDE.
2. Run the Bug_Error().
3. See the pop-up dialog.
On local error goto ErrorHandler
MsgBox "Test output (must be error): " & foo
MsgBox "at line: " & Erl() & ", message (must be ""Undefined variable"" or sth; NOT be ""Foo""): " & Error( ) & " ( " & Err() & " ) "
"Undefined variable" or some appropriate message.
Operating System: Mac OS X
Version: 188.8.131.52 release
On pc Debian x86-64 with 4.2 sources updated some days ago, I got 2 popups:
1) "Test output (must be error):"
2) Error message: "at line: 0, message (must be "Undefined variable" or sth; NOT be "Foo"): ( 0 )"

There is no bug in the BASIC engine. In the example cited, add "Option Explicit" to generate an error in the interpretation phase. At this point, "Erl()" is initialized correctly with the number of the line and "Error()" contains the correct message and Err() contains the correct BASIC error number.
Without "Option Explicit", Erl(), Error() and Err() are respectively 0, "" and 0.
