[mapserver-dev] Hiding large number of errors in msSetError

Could we somehow count the number and report that? I would think it would useful to know that a particular error was reported n times.

Subject: [mapserver-dev] Hiding large number of errors in msSetError

Hi Devs,

There are certain locations in MapServer were a large number of error can be raised subsequently, which might be annoying if the error is getting displayed to the end user (in a message box for example).

One example for this issue is in msProjectPoint (mapproject.c line 118) which may be raised many times for a polygon or a line string. In the meantime I see that the referred line has been commented out in the master branch, but I don't think if it would be the reasonable solution for this problem, since that error may contain important information for the user.

How about modifying msSetError to ignore the error if it has already been issued previously?
