The reason is that the parser reached the end of the file
while still trying to parse a Python statement.

Usually this is caused by such things as a missing quote
or parenthesis. You usually have to go back a line or two
to see where the problem originates.

If you are commenting out lines at the end of the file its
likely you have commented out a closing paren or quote
