New Post: Is it possible to validate script syntax before executing it?

Thank for answer and HNY to everyone,
I was also interested in JScript compilation facilities....

Just for a better understanding: is it a design choice to prevent syntax checking and script compilation from being called independently from script execution?

The reason of this question is: when executing, I agree that library makes the interpretation, and also syntax checking and compilation. But if execution leads to side effects on host objects, I'd prefer to make a syntax check before exec instead of realizing that script was wrong once several host objects have been changed.

WDYT?

My current workaround is: make a copy of host objects involved and make a "dry run" over them, and releasing after script is over, being execution successful or not.
I am not happy with this solution because if host objects are huge, duplicating them might be overwhelming in terms of memory.

Thanks in advance,
Tomaso
