Re: [xml] unsinged short for line numbers

I develop an application using libxml2 to parse (large) XML files.
To help people locating semantic errors in their input files I
recently added support for printing out line numbers. This seems to
be restricted to the first 65535 lines, however.

What I do have is a node context, and if there is something wrong
with its data content, I call:

| long int *errorLines;
| long int errorCount;
| xmlNodePtr node;
| [...]
| errorLines[errorCount] = xmlGetLineNo(node);

xmlGetLineNo is declared long, which is fine, but it passes back
(struct _xmlNode*)->line, which is unsigned short and the cause of
my trouble.

There was a post on this topic here on July 2nd, 2004, however the
author used a parser context and thus could use an alternative, which
is not available for me.

Since this was almost three years ago, I wonder, if nobody else had
this problem - or is there a simple and obvious way I should go, which
I just don't see?

  For very large document you need access to the parser context to
get the 32bit line number. If the error are issued at parsing time you
do get the parser context as part of the Structured error callback data.
