But AFAICS it's not part of the API, so beware (although it's not hidden). By now I think it's safer to use try(parse(text=), silent=TRUE) which gives you the full error with details (the Msg is only one part). It could be worthwhile to think about exposing a C-level API to all the R_ParseError* pieces, though - but I'll leave that to the parser experts since only they know if this is now stable enough.
