Indent on function closing bracket

New Contributor

The issue (if I can call it that) has been resolved. Maybe this post might help save someone else some time if similar is encountered.

While doing exercise 19 in introductory workshop I kept getting parse error (as per attached image). I tried removing spaces around operators, adding semi-columns, removing parameters but without success. Purely by accident I moved the closing bracket inline with function body and it worked!?

While material does say that body of the function should be indented, it does not explicitly mentions closing bracket. Coming from C/C++ background, closing bracket is usually at the same level as opening statement. (or whatever is agreed in coding style - it is a lot more flexible - Q seems to be quite brittle)

It might be worth adding a statement to that effect for noobs like myself
