Hi,

This is my first post on this list, I a beginner on erlang with a long
experience in other languages like python or perl.

When using a xml file with syntax error with xmerl_scan:file the output
indicate the line and column number as :

1> xmerl_scan:file('failed.xml').
2542- fatal: {endtag_does_not_match,{was,request,should_have_been,http}}
** exception exit: {fatal,{{endtag_does_not_match,{was,request,
                                                   should_have_been,http}},
                           {file,'failed.xml'},
                           {line,77},
                           {col,8}}}

The problem is the file failed.xml is composed with a lot of ENTITY so
the original file doesn't contains 77 lines, the debug is not easy is
this case. Howto dump the final xml really analyzed by xmerl_scan to
debug the xml ? 

Is there any options to pass to xmerl_scan ? I read the doc but can't
find the solution. Any helps appreciate

Regards;
