[xquery-talk] incorrect syntax?

Hi Gleb,

Could the prefix in front of the return call be missing? (e.g., local:return, depending on how you defined this function)

By default (if you have not changed it), the default function namespace is the builtin one (also available through fn:), so just typing "return" will look up among builtin functions (fn:return, which as far as I know does not exist).

Does this help?

Kind regards,
