syntax check option ?

 It may be useful to write a syntax-checking precompiler
 for x-plor scripts. (similar to syntax checking option
 in perl etc).

 For example if there was a syntax error that is fatal,
 during b-factor refinement after a full-day of powell
 minimization, the frustration is high. 

 Therefore if there is an option that bypasses actual runs
 and completes a syntax-check run, it will be very useful.

 Alternatively, after checking syntax through the whole script
 the actual run can start.
