Issue/Introduction

Error Message :
N/A

The Automation Engine (AE) documentation incorrectly displayed the syntax for the :BEGIN_EXT_INTERPRETERS and :END_EXT_INTERPRETERS script statements.

The correct syntax for these script statements should be:

:BEGIN_EXT_INT[ERPRETERS]
External Interpreter Script
:END_EXT_INT[EPRETERS]

The script element, as well as the examples, are described using the incorrect syntax as follows (without the "S" at the end):

:BEGIN_EXT_INT[ERPRETER ]
External Interpreter Script
:END_EXT_INT[EPRETER]

If you attempt to use the incorrect syntax described above, it will not work and it is NOT highlighted in the Java User Interface (UI).
