Subject: Incorrect column count in lint messages
Date: Thu, 13 Feb 2020 22:07:31 -0700
Message-ID: <21953-1581656851.930227@-SgG.yrqY.5jf-> (raw)


Consider the following example:

.Oo lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur adipiscing elit sed do eiusmod \
Ar Ns , Oc

When run through mandoc -Tlint, this warning appears:

    mandoc: /tmp/foo.1:4:78: WARNING: skipping no-space macro

The line number is correct, but the column count wrongly includes the
length of the previous line.
