comment Unable to understand where why to need ASCII and HEX detections in Vim's statusline
Some compilers/interpreters give you not only the line number of an error, but the position within the line as well. Also, it can be handy if you're trying to line things up in columns, but the rows are not adjacent making it difficult to do visually.
