I found out put() and puts() statements are executed even the execution flow does not pass from that point.
A very simple code.
$put(myvar,'a') $if($eql(1,2),$puts(myvar,'bcdef'),'1 = 2') $get(myvar) Output of this code is a 1 <> 2 bcdef
Variable myvar is set to 'bcdef' even $puts() is not meant to be called because of $if condition (1==2).
Is this behavior since the beginning of mp3Tag?
