Subject: [Caml-list] line number for assert

The assert primitive of Ocaml 3.02 (windows version) seems to print the source
file location as an offset from the beginning of the file rather than as a
line number and column.

Is there a particular reason for this?

The reason why I'm asking this is that it makes it much more difficult to find
the right assertion on most editors.

Is there a simple way to overcome this limitation?

I was thinking of the possibility of preprocessing the source code with some
simple preprocessor and using a home brewn assertion procedure, but I'd like
to hear about simpler solutions.
