Hello !

Does RuleDelayed work inside MessageName ?

This code:

myFunction[x_]:= x + 1;
myFunction::test = test /. test :> StringJoin[{DateString[], " message"}];


myFunction::test: 2014 04 10 15 10 51 781 message

on a pc and

myFunction::test: -- Message text not found --

on another one, and I can not get a sens of the underlying general rule.

Presumably, I messed up some Global Preferences in Options Inspector, but I can not imagine which one.

Thanks !!

Switch to using SetDelayed and see if that changes its behavior. –  rcollyer Apr 10 at 13:29
