Already reported as bug#30721.
(It would be great if people forwarding other people's stackexchange
issues would do basic checks first.)

Error occurs when forward-sexp is called from closing paren at last
line of example code below

(echo '#!/bin/bash'
echo 'myfunc() {'
echo "cat <<'z'"
seq 135
echo zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
echo z
echo '}') >out

Note that the OP meant you to run that as shell code to generate a file,
"out", and then visit it.

You appear to have discovered that using forward-sexp inside eg



will print "containing expression ends prematurely" ?

When calling the way the OP intended

get the error as below from inside the singlequoted, which also is an old issue:

To avoid these wrote ar-forward-sexp

which see here: https://github.com/andreas-roehler/thingatpt-utils-core/blob/master/ar-subr.el


Debugger entered--Lisp error: (scan-error "Containing expression ends prematurely" 515 515)
  signal(scan-error ("Containing expression ends prematurely" 515 515))
  funcall-interactively(forward-sexp 1)
  call-interactively(forward-sexp nil nil)
