if you use the flag "-w" with srsbuild you see all the parse errors
detected, however, the prime goeal of SRS is to extract as many
words as possible for the indexing ...which means thath i usually expand
the syntax to allow for errors (eg, author name without initials) 

We have just finished developing a new parser which extends the old one
quite a bit  ...this will allow us to tolerate syntax errors but at the 
same time all kinds of error messages could be generated
