Checking for commas instead of periods and so on is what compilers should be good at.We had a huge bunch of (C) code; a large group of processes the communicated among each other using UNIX messages to accomplish the required function. For reasons too boring to describe, all the source code, the binaries, etc., were lost. A barely legible printed copy of all that code existed, so it was taken to the secretarial department and they were asked to type it in. The supervisor said it was too illegible to type in, and there would be no good way to check if they got it right or not.We reassured the supervisor that we had a computer program that could check that. So they typed it in, and we ran it through the compiler. That detected most of the errors, enough that we got it to work again very quickly.
