Thanks. Is is safe to make the same change at line 954, where this error
message also appear?
While watching if it was safe I have noticed a wrong negation in the above
conditions. Now it's fixed, and it is safe to put the same error message
I reworded a bit the message. I prefer to say "at $ref"
than "in $ref". I'm
not sure which one is the best, but anyway.
Moreover, I think we may want to go for a gcc-like notation when possible. Ie:
FILE:LINE: error message.
Actually, the user probably don't really care whether the error
the core of po4a, or this or that module. Not speaking that he knows which
module it is, most of the time, since he provided the -f flag...
Another good point about that is that emacs undertand this notation and jump
to the error point. I'm often pissed of by perl, which hides the error point
right in the middle of the phrase, and I know realize I did the same for
If you agree with me, I'm not sure whether we want to change this right away
(and fuzzy 95% of the strings again), or later.
No problem for me. Most module names are already out of the error
messages, and we should only remove the references in the middle of some
messages (and it's relatively fast to update fuzzy messages).
