LaTeX has got to have the worst error reporting of any software I've worked with.

@ayo Have you tried Guile? I work more often with *TeX so I get it, but Guile has a similar long road to go.

@ng0 Heh, I'll consider myself glad that I've never used Guile, then.

@ayo The only semi-workable way is compiling your stuff so often that you know precisely within which ~100 characters this error has to have been produced, tbh.
