[Opm] OPM output

Thanks for your help with OPM Flow last week. All seems to be well now with that problem.

I have a quick question. Is it possible to get more diagnostics from Flow as the DATA file is parsed?

For example when running Eclipse, a message appears when the keywords are recognised (preceded by "READING "). This is useful when identifying errors. It lets me know where in the file the error has occurred and I can check there. However, Flow might not produce any output.

For example, if I use a keyword like WCONINJ instead of WCONINJE, the only output to screen is the following text:
"Failed to create valid EclipseState object.
Exception caught: PARSE_UNKNOWN_KEYWORD: Keyword INJ not recognised.
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::invalid_argument'
  what(): PARSE_UNKNOWN_KEYWORD: Keyword INJ not recognised.
Aborted (core dumped)."

WCONINJ seems to be recognised and skipped but the line of data is then considered as a possible new keyword. Now I know it's there but there may be instances in the future when I create a mistake I am not aware of.

I've looked through the manual for command line parameters that switch something on but can't see it. It would be a great addition if you don't do it already. It would just require a write statement as the DATA file is parsed.
