So, there is a parsing bug with the unique "+=", "-=", "*=", "/=", and "%=" PICO-8 flavored lua syntax. In normal lua, something like this:
is valid syntax, treated as two separate expressions. That works in PICO-8, but this:
throws a syntax error. It's odd because this:
does not throw a syntax error. It seems to be only with the unique PICO-8 equals operators and directly after square brackets.
Fixing this could benefit people working on tweet carts as well as carts that are token & character/compression sensitive.
