Heh... I’ve consistently found, with all such languages, that if there is even one “syntax error,” everything else is totally-bogus until that error is fixed. Each syntax-error represents a point where the parser/lexer landed completely and unceremoniously on its (ice-skating) ass, then struggled valiantly to get back on its feet and to continue with the program ... knowing, alas, that it would never win the medal. (At this point, the only objective is to see how many additional times the skater might trip up.) Until the source-code parses clean, no other messages the compiler/interpreter may generate are worth anything at all. (At that point, it’s just trying to smile and keep up appearances.)
