      Description

      When a student hits a compiler-error, in addition to highlighting the offending line, could you also indicate which column the error occurs at? This is indispensable for beginners, and given that javac is providing this info under the hood it would be nice to have it relayed back to the user. (I'd prefer seeing a second highlight color like red, but as a 5-minute fix at least include the info with the existing error message?)
      Thx,
