These kind of errors can be eliminated if one writes an expression in
a specific order.

For example:

to write:
        cont(another expression)

do:

 1. write:

         count(

                   )

2. Position the cursor on the blank line that is surrounded by the brackets

3. Write the expression (may require to repeat these rules recursively):

           count(
                      expression
                     )


Any step of this process results in having the current (written so
far) expression syntactically correct. One simulates (manually) of
what a syntax-oriented editor would do.


Hope this helped.

Cheers,
