Subject: rc error messages from scripts
Date: Wed, 8 Dec 1999 10:09:34 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <199912081509.QAA05614@trillian.softwell.se> (raw)


When developing scripts I sometimes get the error message:

line 25: syntax error near '('

Would it be possible to change this? Or is somebody using this information,
and depending upon the layout?

What I would like is
scriptname:25 <and basically anything, say syntax error near '('

The reason for me asking is that I use wily, and wily will automagically
open the file on the right line if the error message looks like the new, suggested format.
