This patch adds the ability to specify an optional column in the "Goto Line Number" dialog, by appending ".colNum" to the line number. For example, "76.15" will take you to line 76, column 15. You can also jump to a column in the current line by just entering ".colNum" (ie ".15").
"Why?" you may ask...
One of the main compilers I use (IBM's C compiler for AIX) prints the line and column where errors occur. With this patch, I can go directly to the line and column where the error occurs, instead of using the dialog to go to the line and the cursor or mouse to go to the column.
