So I've completely removed and re-installed bro-2.2. Here's what I get
when I try and test the script:
[11:11:47 @analysis:~/brostuff/testbrofiles$] bro largeTx.bro
error in ./largeTx.bro, line 7: unrecognized character -
error in ./largeTx.bro, line 8: unrecognized character -
error in ./largeTx.bro, line 96: unrecognized character -
error in ./largeTx.bro, line 97: unrecognized character -
I've tried just downloading the file from email, copying and pasting as
text, and even getting rid of the tab control characters. The below
snippet works though:
print "Hello World!";
[11:15:15 @analysis:~/brostuff/testbrofiles$] bro helloworld.bro
If I copy the script to /usr/local/bro/share/bro/site, add it to
local.bro with "@load largeTx.bro", start broctl, install, then start, I
get a fail and diag shows the same as above.
Am I missing something obvious? Thank you.
