UNSPECIFIED. (1994) A PRACTICAL MINIMUM DISTANCE METHOD FOR SYNTAX ERROR HANDLING. COMPUTER LANGUAGES, 20 (4). pp. 239-252. ISSN 0096-0551Full text not available from this repository.
We present a method for recovering for syntax errors encountered during parsing. The method provides a form of minimum distance repair, has linear time complexity, and is completely automatic. A formal method is presented for evaluating the performance of error recovery methods, based on global minimum-distance error correction. The minimum-distance error recovery method achieves a theoretically best performance on 80% of Pascal programs in the weighted Ripley-Druseikis collection. Comparisons of performance with other error recovery methods are given.
