Like, Tony, I find his strategy described below quite useful.  I use several
text editors, depending on several things.  When I use EmEditor it allows
keeping a list of "snippets" in a panel on the side of the document, where I
created the snippet 

dis as result  "L\{CurLine}_\{Filename}      "

When clicked on while editing a file  this inserts the line number and file
name into the do file for the same reasons as Peter has described.

When I am creating a do-file or an ado-file, I always have errors.  I have
found that judicious use of display commands (disp "got to line 20")  tells
me at least where there isn't an error.  This is probably way to
old-fashioned, but it works for me.
