Bugs, yes, but also parseability problems by your definition. If the parser cannot be expected to compute bad programming in the C example due to execution details, how can it be expected to in perl or any language?

I am convinced all mod comp courses are snoozefests. It's like being taught the identity property in middle school and gritting your teeth at how obvious it all is. Yet the textbook costs over $100- people get paid for this!
