This function returns the state that the parser would have at position
@var{pos}, if it were started with a default start state at the
beginning of the buffer. Thus, it is equivalent to
@code(parse-partial-sexp (point-min) @var{pos}), except that
@code{syntax-ppss} uses a cache to speed up the computation. Also,
the 2nd value (previous complete subexpression) and 6th value (minimum
