Error type


What went wrong?

A specific language construct was expected, but something else was provided. This might be a simple typo.


Expression expected

For example, when chaining expressions, trailing commas are not allowed.

for (let i = 0; i < 5,; ++i) {
// SyntaxError: expected expression, got ')'

Correct would be omitting the comma or adding another expression:

for (let i = 0; i < 5; ++i) {
