    The code around that line in that script is not well-formed. If you
    don't know what to do please send lines 170 to 190 specifying which
    one is line 181.

    The word "continue" is not in that code so please post the actual code
    that produced that error message.

    That script does not seem to contain any occurrence of "continue", are
    you sure that's the one?

    leva@jive:~/svn/scripts4geda$ ls
    bomer.pl light2heavy.pl pscat.pl test.sch

    leva@jive:~/svn/scripts4geda$ cat ./dbubdate.pl |grep continue
    leva@jive:~/svn/scripts4geda$

    So... that is why I am asking. Using Debian stable, x86_64
    perl -v
    This is perl, v5.8.8 built for x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi

    Thank you for your help...

    could you please try the script? Maybe it is a debian bug?

    Your problem is caused by the use of the Switch module. Rewrite your
    code without that module and you won't have a problem.

    Thank you. I'm on it. That is very odd. Why is that so? Is there anything with
    my perl version?

    Switch uses a source filter which modifies your code before it is
    compiled by perl and as such there are certain things that will not
    compile correctly.

    snip

    It means that you used improper syntax near line 181. That is you
    made a statement that does not follow the rules of the Perl language.
    Perl is not certain which rule you broke, it just knows the parser
    reached an invalid state at line 181. Look at that line and the ones
    preceding it to see if you are missing a parenthesis, bracket, brace,
    semicolon, etc.
