I have spotted the term "fuzzy parser" in advertising for two tools
Peter Coads Together C++, CASE tool for OO-design in C++
http://www,oid.com and TakeFive's programming environment/CASE tool
SNIFF++ http://www.takefive.com

The fuzzy parser makes it possible for the tools to understand
incomplete sourcecode.

Is a fuzzy parser Tomitas algorithm permutated with a fuzzy approach
or ...?
I can see that one can limit the forest of parse trees (I saw that
expression in some paper about Tomitas approach) by applying some
fuzzy threshold.

If not, does anyone know what a fuzzy parser is?
