    If no ``compiler_suite`` is given it is assumed that the source
    file is an EBNF grammar. In this case the result will be a Python
    script containing a parser for that grammar as well as the
378
    skeletons for a preprocessor, AST transformation table, and compiler.

    If the Python script already exists only the parser name in the
    script will be updated. (For this to work, the different names
381
    need to be delimited section marker blocks.). `compile_on_disk()`

    Parameters:
        source_file(str):  The file name of the source text to be
            compiled.
        compiler_suite(str):  The file name of the compiler suite
389
            (usually ending with 'Compiler.py'), with which the source

            file shall be compiled. If this is left empty, the source
            file is assumed to be an EBNF-Grammar that will be compiled
            with the internal EBNF-Compiler.
        extension(str):  The result of the compilation (if successful)
            is written to a file with the same name but a different
            extension than the source file. This parameter sets the
            extension.
            
    Returns:
399
        A (potentially empty) list of error or warning messages.
