limbo error messages
the most recalcitrant diagnostic i've encountered so far is the one on array initialisations : e.g. operand.b:25: inconsistent types OperandDescr and (int, string, (array of int, string)) in array initializer in this case, the line number refers to the beginning of the array initialisation, which runs for 100 lines or so. the actual problem is buried somewhere in the initialisation. if you can't see the error, the only solution is to selectively comment out lines until the error goes away... then you've found it! apart from that (and "syntax error") its diagnostics are more useful than many C compilers'. anyway, the diagnostics are secondary... it's such an enormous pleasure to write limbo code. rog.
