Get a comments corresponding post_id

Closed

Currently comments have an attribute for their parent. However, since comments on Reddit can be nested, often times the parent will be another comment. To get a comments corresponding post, one has to either build a tree using the given IDs and parent IDs and flatten the tree or parse a comments URL since the URL contains the ID of the comments post. E.g.: For the comment with this URL "https://www.reddit.com/r/pasta/comments/vwi6jx/pasta_peperoni_and_ricotta_cheese_how_to_make/ifu6eun" the posts id ID is "vwi6jx".

It would be helpful to add a field to comments along the lines of "post_id" which contains the ID of the post the comment was posted to.
