I was wondering how type-checking is normally done. I'm using the
look-ahead token method of scanning. What I'm doing is similar to (if
not the same as) what Lex and Yacc do, which is to retrieve a token,
and return both a token code and a token string for most
keywords/symbols. I'm thinking of saving the current line (from the
start of the current line to the end-of-line marker), then after
retrieving all the tokens, I was thinking of running it through a
type-checker before generating the code. Am I on the right track?

advantage in doing so. -John]
