Yes, of course, but I think it would be nice if such a feature was added,
errors would be clearer. Maxima could easily and automatically find where the
error is located, and show the line. I think users programming in maxima's
language and writing .mac files would appreciate that. In particular, why
should one debug the code when the solution could be so simple? A large part
of scientific scripting-oriented programs show errors with such details.
