That seems a dubious claim...  There are always particular cases where
any given compiler gives bad errors, but I've not noticed any general
difference in clarity between gcc's error messages and other compilers.

[and of course, if you're a windows user who's been inculcated into
fearing even the _concept_ of a compiler, the mere presence of any error
message at all is frightening...]


Joy, n. An emotion variously excited, but in its highest degree arising from
the contemplation of grief in another.
