When compiling computer programs or commands, it is necessary to ensure that valid combinations of keywords are specified on command statements when attributes of user symbols are significant to conflict determination. Prior techniques have not guaranteed complete coverage of valid and invalid cases. Strictly pair-wise checking techniques require testing of all combinations of pairs of keywords to ensure that no conflicts exist. This is very time consuming and difficult to automate.
