Im using xpand to get a Template form a xpt file.
there are special characters in the file which is causing parser exception but xpand is sending wrong line number as part of exception message.

When debugged found that there is bug in class at line number 83 in createError method

e.line is passed as second parameter instead of as third parameter for SyntaxError constructor.

 protected static XtendError createError(final RecognitionException e, final String string) {
    if (e.token == null) {
      return new SyntaxError(e.index, e.line, e.index + 1, string);
    final CommonToken t = (CommonToken) e.token;
    return new SyntaxError(t.getStartIndex(), t.getStopIndex(), t.getLine(), string);

Xpand is pretty dead, subsumed by the String Template functionality of Xtend.

Unfortunately Xtend, as a better Java, is dying though I hope its String Templates will live on somehow.

You can try making a patch available via GIT.
