Subject: [Boost-interest] Annoucement: A gcc diagnostic message filter
From: Emmanuel Le Trong (manu_at_[hidden])

     I have built a perl script to filter (and optionally colorize) GCC
diagnostic messages. As it is mainly aimed at simplifying heavy error
messages from templated C++ code, I thought I might announce it here.


    * coloring of diagnostic messages (with customizable colors),
    * simplification of templated programs output: removal of "with"
      clauses, template arguments,
    * inline replacement of template arguments by their values,
    * removal of namespaces,
    * removal of instantiation chains.
