{version = 1.04; (* of fileposition.p 1996 March 24}

(* begin module describe.fileposition *)

name
   fileposition: report the line that has a given file position

synopsis
   fileposition(input: in, fin: in, output: out)

files
   input:  a number, n, in characters and
           the number of characters before that point, the "prebuffer"
   fin:    a file
   output: the line in fin contining the n't character, with "prebuffer"
      characters printed before it.  This prebuffer allows one to see
      the context of the line.

description
   Ghostview reports locations of problems in characters.  In one case it
   objected to a stackoverflow in roll, but there is no roll in the code, so it
   would be nice to know the line number so I can get to it!
