Next on my To Do list was to redo the error messages. The idea was that I was going to list each message every time it happened along with the GEDCOM line it happened at.

But what I have already done was nicely organize the messages so that (in most cases) each message is listed only once along with a list of all the places that problem exists. Thinking about this, it actually makes more sense to show a message once with 200 references, rather than to repeat the same message 200 times for each reference.

Since Behold makes an attempt to read and interpret every variation of GEDCOM there is, many people won’t care about the problems with the GEDCOMs, and are more interested in the data.

That said, Behold is very good at checking the data. So although the Log file is out of the way, it is valuable. So I will at least try to a better indication of when problems worth fixing have been found.
