[javac] C:\src\xxx.java:230: ')' expected
It would be really nice if you could take the time to make that error message also say something like
Unmatched left parenthesis was seen on line 184
That way I wouldn't have to fiddle around using hacky techniques like commenting out half of my program to try to figure out where I accidentally left out the parenthesis.
It seems that modern compilers do usually issue quite precise messages; maybe this particular one just fell through some crack in the parse techniques where the compiler just had no idea where it was that the parenthesis matching got out of sync.
Oh well, I eventually found it. Just wish I could have that 15 minutes of my life back.
