[Octave-bug-tracker] [bug #34852] incorrect column number on error messages

Update of bug #34852 (project octave):
Severity: 3 - Normal => 2 - Minor
Status: None => Confirmed
Follow-up Comment #1:
It's difficult to see here because the web interface eats whitespace (use ++
... -- tags here next time to enclose code), but the problem is that the error
line is pointing to the assignment operator instead of the multiplication
A relevant discussion from #octave follows:
<jwe> We currently don't save teh information about the locations of
individual operators when we are evaluating them.
<jwe> So the matrix multiply function can't print it.
<jwe> And the code that generates the backtrace just looks at the call
stack, which has info only about the locations of the statements.
<jwe> For the line with teh assignment, the location is the location
of the = operator.
<jwe> We should probably just drop the column number from the error
message so it is not misleading.
