Re: column numbers and ranges in error messages

   (1) Does anyone know any program (or program option) that emits:

       sourcefile:line1.column1-column2: message


       sourcefile:line1:column1-column2: message

I think that this might not be the best forum to ask since it is very
limited, but I recall some Ada and Fortran compilers producing the
above.  Doesn't GCC also produce a more elaborate variant these days?

   (2) Does anyone know of a program (or emacs mode) that makes use the column2?
   Emacs compile.el will recognize the above syntax (at least the colon kind),
   but it seems to throw it away.

Not off hand, but would be a nice feature to extend and show not just
which line, but mark the column range where the error/warning occurs.
