  • Describe the scenario and benefits that the feature supports.

If you're building with the -outputType IntermediatePostLink switch and don't include the Product (for example), the error message is confusing:

error : Could not find entry section in provided list of intermediates. Expected section of type 'IntermediatePostLink'.

'IntermediatePostLink' can be any of the various entry section types. It would probably be better to list those types so it's more clear.

  • Describe how you're accomplishing the feature today (if possible).

n/a. Just being slightly more confused than normal.

  • Describe what you'd like the new feature to do.

Reduce confusion to baseline levels.

One for IPL and when we know the expected entry section type. Add error message when there's one entry section that doesn't match what's expected (if available).
