Dear R-users,

I have a problem with the IF-ELSE syntax. Please look at the folllowing code and tell me what's wrong:

a <- TRUE
if ( a )
{

        cat("TRUE","\n")
}
else
{

        cat("FALSE","\n")
}

If I try to execute with R I get:

     Error: syntax error, unexpected ELSE in "else" The strange thing is either "cat" instructions are executed!!

My system is: Fedora Core 6 x86_64 + R 2.5.0 (rpm)

Thank you very much in advance!!!!

Regards,
