Looking for a way to have a fault-tolerant navigation. I.e. in case of broken syntax, uncomplete forms etc. --when check-paren fails--, it should try some heuristics.

Unfortunatly can't use check-parens resp. scan-lists for branching, as these return an error, which breaks further execution. Consider nil as return value in case of fail and some-value in case of correctnes.

  • @npostavs Must distingish the result. Nil is already returned in case of success. A workaround will check if point moved by syntactic-sensitiv navigation. – Andreas Röhler Nov 6 '18 at 6:57
  • condition-case+progn then. I guess the diificulty is in the "heuristics" though. – npostavs Nov 6 '18 at 12:18
