Subject another weird parser case
Date Sun, 30 Sep 2018 22:45:44 GMT
Hi there,

lately, I got bit in my tender parts by this catch, sorta similar to the debate of the more-line-expression
of late -- this time, though, a line which I presumed to be compiled separately is considered
a part of the previous command:

20 /tmp> <q.groovy 
class foo {
  static bar() { }
  static Closure baz() {
    bar()// ';' here mandatory, or a return on the next line
    { -> }
21 /tmp> /usr/local/groovy-3.0.0-alpha-3/bin/groovy q
Caught: groovy.lang.MissingMethodException: No signature of method: static is applicable
for argument types: (foo$_baz_closure1) values: [foo$_baz_closure1@ae7950d]

I am not sure whether it can be fixed without breaking other functionalities (perhaps not;
note e.g., that a 'bar(Closure)' could be added through a metaclass dynamically before the
call); and even if it could, whether it would be worth the effort.

All the best,
