Hi Pramod,

> Can i please have an idea how does G++ Generates the error message that are displayed on the output screen while compiling? Are there any tables that are used to reference abt the errors, how they detect the errors and how does g++ generate them? Can u please give me a help? I need these information for my University Project...

You can download and inspect the GCC source for more details:
