[fpc-devel] possibility to include compiler info (line number) as integer rather than string

Quoting http://www.freepascal.org/docs-html/prog/progsu38.html

the {$INCLUDE} directive inserts a string constant in the source code.

    Linenumer on which the directive is found.

How hard would it be for me to modify the FPC preprocessor to add an
option (INTLINE or something) to insert a numeric constant in the
source code rather than a string constant?

If that would be doable, could anyone give me a pointer on where in
the source code I'd look to begin? I haven't delved much into that
realm of the compiler's code as of yet.
