Various SQL newbie syntax mistakes that could use clearer messages #513
I recently went through hundreds of reports for our first SQL challenge and identified common syntax errors that newbies make. I've updated the SQL output for the most common ones, but there are still quite a few that I didn't address. The messages are just based off of doing an indexOf/search() on the error message and statement right now, nothing fancy. We may want to get fancier in future if syntax-error-finding performance is significant.
See example commit ee78b46 for making changes.
