Jon Siwek commented on BIT-1199:

Johanna, though it may not be trivial to continue processing input on errors like these as mentioned in BIT-1229, is it easy to improve the error message to include file name and line number info as suggested by this ticket?

> This came up on the mailing list a few weeks ago. If one tries to load the attached file as Intelligence, Bro will error out, with:
> {code}
> internal error: Value not found in enum mappimg. Module: GLOBAL, var: , var size: 0
> {code}
> The attached file contains an extra tab after downloader.com.
> It'd be nice if Bro would tell you that this was an issue with the input reader, which file it occurred in, and a line number.
> I think generally speaking, if there's an issue with an input file, it'd be nice to know the line number.
> (Also, there's a typo in mappimg in the error message that's currently displayed).
