      Well, for the moment, the output is fixed. But it should be fairly simple to
      make it customizable.

      You only have to replace the calls to "getFileLineColumnString()" in
      'RecognitionException.java/cpp' by calls to another method. Then at the same
      time you can delete the method above which becomes superfluent.

      One thing I am not very happy about it the fact that there are too many
      different functions for reporting errors and warnings, as you can see when
      running ANTLR itself.

      I would appreciate it very much if you clean up the existing code (both Java
      and C++) in a way that there is only one method (or maybe two) for reporting
      errors and warnings. I would have done it by myself but my ressources are
      limited (ANTLR is just a meta problem for me).

      Nevertheless, I think my patch is a first small step in the right direction and
      I would like to see it taken into the source code repository because other
      motivated ANTLR developers start turning everyhting inside out :-)

      Kind regards,
