Encounter "Error Parsing DDL for ..." when trying to alter a stored procedure that contains a variable name with double dollar sign "$$".

I believe it is due to the default delimiter of MySQL Workbench is "$$"

Although I have changed the delimiter to "//" at the menu "Edit->Preferences->General Editors->Non-Standard SQL Delimiter:", but still encounter the problem.

This is not happen at the previous version build 828 (64bit)

How to repeat:
Try to alter any stored procedure that contains any variable name with double dollar sign "$$"

Example, create a sp_Test stored procedure below and try to alter with the workbench of the version reported.

declare $$var1 int;

    set $$var1:=1;
    select $$var1;

Hello Khim Thin,

Thank you for the report.
Observed this on Win7 with WB 6.3.8.

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 8.0.11 release, and here's the changelog entry:

Altering a stored procedure that contained double dollar-sign characters
($$) as part of a variable name produced an error parsing DDL message.

Thank you for the bug report.

Am still experiencing this problem using WorkBench 8.0.12.
