in reply to A familiar mantra

When I copy this code, the ... shows up as character 0x85, and I get a compile error. If I change to 3 single periods, I get a runtime error. This runs without errors for me:
do{ } || !do{ };

    The true ellipses were used for aesthetics, the bastard ASCII analog are meant to cause a runtime error. Or, more accurately, an exception… but of course, there is no try ;-)
