Quite the opposite, MUCH joy. This is precisely why you should _ALWAYS_
post an actual screen log, as opposed to a paraphrased description of
In : %pdoc(Exception)
ERROR: Magic function `pdoc(Exception)` not found.

Common base class for all exceptions.
The parens are the problem here (which I saw immediately, but you failed

than functions, so they are invoked typically without parens, and they
simply act on the input string.
I hope this helps,
