Parser problem - "/*" not usable in function parameters
It seems the /* and */ characters confuse the parser in certain situations

Hi Eros,

I found this problem by accident, but it is quite strange - if you include /* sequence in function parameter string, ThinBASIC gets confused.

Test code to demonstrate issue:
Dim s As String = "/* this is it*/"

MsgBox 0, Grab$(s, "/*", "*/")
... should display " this is it " but instead I get Run Time Error.
