Wrote a looping routine with a conditional based on millis time duration.
The conditional was ((millis - previousMillis) < 5000) and the loop would just blow right through without taking 5 seconds.
I finally figured out the parenthesis were missing from “millis” and that fixed to loop.
The strange thing is, “millis” was ‘orange’ indicating the IDE recognized it as a program instruction keyword, but the compiler did not call it out as a syntax error because the parenthesis were missing.
Posting this find in case the IDE developers want to address this, or maybe there is some other purpose to use “millis” without the parenthesis that I am not aware of ??
