Weird CGA rule: How does this work?

Poking around in the "Pompeii" example​ , I found this line in pompeiiStreets.cga (line 55):

split(x){ stoneLength*rand(0.8,1.2): Stone | RollingStones }

I'm pretty new to CGA in general, but the docs on the split operation don't mention the possibility of a successor block without a size (as in "RollingStones" above). What will happen when this line runs? Is "RollingStones" just the shape successor for "all the remaining geometry" after the split?

Must be old code, that doesn't work anymore. It should be ~1: RollingStones.

I downloaded the code from the link you sent (and also from within CE by going to Help -> Download Tutorials and Examples), but I have something different on line 55.  The code you mention appears on line 98 instead, and it has a ~1 as Z R​ mentioned.

split(x){ StoneLength*rand(0.8,1.2): Stone | ~1: RollingStones }
