in thread JAPH-ing Genetically

p is not a syntax error (test it) . Or do you mean a string which is a valid program and contains the chars "syntax error"? Then you have misunderstood. I meant "syntax error" in $@ after eval

    I meant 'the probability of a syntax error'. Andy.
      Not so large. The DWIM in perl deciphers a good part of junk to things no one has dreamed of. There are many warnings. A variable can have a junk name. The possibilities are endless. You could split your string and use the half(third...)that doesn't contain the error. Or how many parts contain an error if the string is cut haphazardly(=1/FITNESS).
