comma-vs-period issue appearing again.

integer. Also, real integers (when small) were not displaying correctly.
It affected the following templates.

same exact error & shape occurs twice. This is is designed to force the
student to actually read the window rather than just clicking "Ok".

the functions from another Flowgorithm program file. It's simular to the
concept of "include" except the functions will be added to the current
program rather than being linked.
