Subject: Compilation headaches

Dear NONMEM Users,

I'm trying to use Salford FTN77 personal edition to compile the NONMEM distribution files, but have run into the following problem:

0166) ITEM='-'//ITEM
*** The same character operand must not appear on both sides of an assignment
1 ERRORS [<WRITPR>FTN77 Ver 4.03]

Can anyone give me an idea of how to fix this?

Kind regards
