This item was introduced in E-Prime 2.0 (188.8.131.52).
When generating an experiment, E-Studio will fail with an error if any script has an Option Base 1 or Option CStrings Off script.
E-Basic relies on array values being 0 index based. In addition, Option CStrings On is required by E-Basic to permit c-style escape characters for \n new lines.
E-Studio catches attempts to change the Option Baseor Option CStrings value to avoid potential issues with experiment logic.
NOTE: Collection objects in E-Basic are always 1-based and are not affected by Option Base.
