Error: IndexedDictionary.lua:1: '=' expected near ''

I'm trying to update the Travel plugin to include the new maps, but whenever I change the IndexDictionary file, I get this error:

IndexedDictionary.lua:1: '=' expected near ''
It's odd because even if the only thing I change is adding a comment to the top of the file, I still get this error. Not really sure what is going on but it would be nice to see the new maps placed into the Travel plugin.

Sounds like the file has special characters (non-ascii) and you aren't saving the file with UTF-8 encoding.

You need to use a text editor that can save files using the UTF-8 character encoding without adding a 'byte order mark' in the file, otherwise the lua interpreter thinks the mark is code and fails.

Most devs use Notepad++ (Windows...). Use "UTF-8 without BOM" as encoding. http://notepad-plus-plus.org/
