Whilst on the subject of things in ColdFusion that don't work

I also found this one whilst testing Adam's code (as per previous article).

This doesn't work in ColdFusion (9.0.1):

a = 1;
b = 2;
writeOutput("Result: #a == b#");

I get:

Error Occurred While Processing Request

Invalid CFML construct found on line 4 at column 25.

ColdFusion was looking at the following text:=

But this is fine:
a = 1;
b = 2;
writeOutput("Result: #a EQ b#");

Obviously both should work fine. And they do on both Railo and OpenBD.

That's all I have to say on that. Bug raised: 3600686.
