	I seem to be getting the following syslog error everytime I 
  create a script for MOBProgram. So to make sure I was doing everything 
  right, I added the sample script found at the end of the mobprog.doc file 
  that comes with the distribution.
   60 17 30 30d8+7 1d4+0
   2500 30000
   8 8 2
   >in_file_prog sample.prg~
	The error reads like this:

   SYSERR: fread_string: format error at or near Error in file act_prog

	The question at hand is (since I am not the coding IMP) is this a 
  source code problem, or is there something I am doing wrong, or not doing 
  that would cause this error? The error itself seems a bit too open to 
  interpretation to me.

Hmm, normally, the easiest way to find out would be to grep in the source
directory for "format error at or near Error at file act_prog" or 
something similar.  But since you don't have the source, that's probably
not a viable option.
On the otherhand, I don't recall a >in_file_prog in the standard Mobprog
procedures, so this sounds like something your IMP/coders added... have
you checked with them?
