I really hate this so called "parser".  It does not accept lack of 
white space many places it should (ie var $sys foovar=2;  is an 
error)  and treates carriage returns as somethign other then white 

I really don't want to re-write the whole compiler, but if I re-write 
the parser will someone else do the symantic glue?
