What Is A Line Number In Programming?

A line number refers to a unique identifier or label assigned to each line of code within a text or code editor. Line numbers are used to pinpoint the location of specific instructions or statements within the code. They aid in identifying errors, debugging [→], and navigating through the codebase.

Whenever errors [→] are encountered by compilers [→] and interpreters [→], they will point out the line number corresponding to the code that might be causing the issue.

01: var x = 1; 02: console.log(x);

In the above code sample, you will notice the code highlighter numbers our code 01, and 02.
