Acceptance Criteria:
* Parsable lines that are malformed due to the error line bug in vermin, should be "repaired" before being interpreted. * If the "reason" of a non-summary line output from vermin contains an error (f.ex. syntax error in the input file), we should fail that file even if the version string claims that the file passes our criteria for version of python.


Description Alexander Zeijlon cendio 2023-02-20 12:22:07 CET
When vermin checks for compatibility, it is too optimistic in guessing python version if the evaluated line happens to be interpreted as a syntax error. We want the test case test_python_compatibility in test_scripts.py to fail an input file if there is any chance of it containing invalid or incompatible code.

Additionally, parsable error lines are malformed due to a bug in vermin which means we need to have a work around to be able to treat these lines correctly.

This has been fixed now.

Tested this and it seems to work fine. Syntax errors in files no longer pass through the tests.
