Absolutely. The most mine will do is signal an error and then print a
message saying what it *thinks* the user meant. This allows the user
to hopefully correct their program more easily, but the compiler will
not do any corrections by itself. The biggest bonus with this system
is that it can quite often point out several unrelated errors with one
run, without any extraneous error messages.
