Section 15.1, “Defining tasks”, begins with the following:
We have already seen how to define tasks using a keyword style in Chapter 6, Build Script Basics. There are a few variations on this style, which you may need to use in certain situations. For example, the keyword style does not work in expressions.
This paragraph needs some clarification, but I’m having trouble figuring out what was meant to be said.
From the reference to “keyword style” and “chapter 6”, you’d think that chapter 6 would have some mention of “keyword style”. This is not the case. I imagine this means referring to a bare symbol without quotes, but I need to confirm that.
I’m also not sure what is meant by “the keyword style does not work in expressions”. Does that refer to the fact that referencing a “keyword” that isn’t defined as a variable will result in an error?
