Please explain what you mean. I'm 99% sure you don't want to convert
lineX, characterY
in rectangular coordinates to polar coordinates in the form
angle (measured from the horizontal line), length (measured in pixels).

Do you want the full line shown? It wouldn't help too much anyway if your
procedure is 300 lines long, for example.

Or do you want a MS Office assistant to popup and show you graphically where
the error is, with your favorite MIDI in the background? We could replace
Mr. Genius with Mr. Starkey and the dog with a wolf, for example.
