Unnecessary lemon_sprintf in lemon.c?

Unnecessary lemon_sprintf in lemon.c?

Is the lemon_sprintf(line,… on line 4768 in ReportTable completely spurious? I don't see line being used elsewhere in that function. Just curious.

(I'm porting lemon.c to Go, fwiw.)

I agree that it provides no functionality in normal usage of Lemon. However, I know that when debugging it can be useful to get information into a readable form somewhere that never escapes the program except via display by the debugger. I see this motivation as more likely than a simple oversight by the code's author.

Good luck with your port.

Thanks for the report. Harmless extra code fixed on trunk.
