Per discussion in [1], this patch improves error reporting in pltcl.


I forgot to mention that this work is sponsored by Flight Aware

Huh ... I use that site.  There's PG and pltcl code behind it?
Cool!

Heh, I didn't realize you were a TCL fan.

They've been heavy PG users from the start. Eventually PG had trouble keeping up with the in-flight tracking so they created Speed Tables [1]. And Karl (one of the founders) is a well known TCL contributor[2].

When it comes to sheer geek factor though, I think the multilateration[3] stuff they're doing with their ADS-B network is a really cool data application. It's basically a form of "reverse GPS" for tracking aircraft.
