8.19 --brief_diagnostics, --no_brief_diagnostics

Enables and disables the output of brief diagnostic messages.

When enabled, the original source line is not displayed, and error message text is not wrapped if it is too long to fit on a single line.

Default

The default is --no_brief_diagnostics.

Example

/* main.c */
#include <stdio.h>
int main(void)
{
   printf(""Hello, world\n"); // Intentional quotation mark error
   return 0;
}

Compiling this code with --brief_diagnostics produces:

"main.c", line 5: Error:  #18: expected a ")"
"main.c", line 5: Error:  #7: unrecognized token
"main.c", line 5: Error:  #8: missing closing quote
"main.c", line 6: Error:  #65: expected a ";"
