Well, the external code I have for processing this output actually
searches back from the end of the string, so that wouldn't be a problem
in this case.
For info, the python code I am using to implement a kind of 'editor
breakpoint' command with this looks like this:
def __init__ (self):
super(BreakPointAtEditorLocationCommand, self).__init__ ("eb",
def invoke (self, arg, from_tty):
output = subprocess.check_output(["geany", "--print-location"])
pos = output.rfind(':')
if not pos == -1:
command = "b " + output[:pos]
BreakPointAtEditorLocationCommand() #required to register command
