What is the DLTK's typical approach for working with AST that is broken by interim edits, such as typing "this." to invoke code completion?

Is there a concept of using the previous cached AST, or should the parser rather be made to be resistent to any interim editing and provide the structure down to method/fields/lcoal vars in all possible cases?

Hi Jan,

The typical approach is making the parser tolerant to the errors, so it can recover after the error and continue on the next statement, etc.

Regards,
Alex
