It's not related to the macro scanner. He found an even older version
of Perl than I am using, and there's a difference in the allowable
options for the SUBSTR() function.

I did a dejagoogle search and found some notes about adding that
capability in mid-1998 or so.

The dev snapshot contains the patch. Thanks.
