The offending text is: -- for 1..4 { NEXT { print " potato, "; } LAST { print "." } print; } Between each iteration, the NEXT block executes, printing "potato". At the end of the final iteration, the LAST block prints a period. So the final result is "1 potato, 2 potato, 3 potato, 4". -- The typo is that the full stop should be within the quotes in the final sentence, as it is added to the output by by the "LAST" instruction.
