#6546 new enhancement

Keymap -l should be more specific about errors in the layout

I made a Lithuanian layout for myself, and used vim for that purpose. When I tried to load it, I get the following error:

keymap: error when loading the keymap: Bad data

This error message is basically useless. It would be much more helpful if it would actually hint to the line (and preferably the column) in which the error occured.

Per Pulkomandy's suggestion, I'm attaching the keymap file in question.

The erring keymap

Note: in the keymap file, I found and fixed an obvious error in line 236, but I still get same error. I even tried deleting everything from line 190, and nothing changed – still same error. It's really hard to debug main part of the keymap with no way to see detailed messages...

Which command line do you actually run ?

As of hrev31195, the -l option loads binary keymap files and not source keymap files.

Right, I used keymap -l, as the header of the file said.

However, trying keymap -s just crashes the app instead of returning any useful debug output.
