Methods for error recovery in parsing a deterministic, context-free language need not be derived by ad hoc means. When fixed, table-driven parsing algorithms are used the error recovery procedures can also make use of knowledge about the grammar for the language, derived from the parsing tables. However, at the point of detection of certain kinds of syntax errors, the knowledge of a sentential prefix already parsed, as reflected in the current state of the parsing stack, will be incorrect… Expand
