Well, AFAIK the error output of Erlang is something like:

./test.erl:5: syntax error before:foo

I suppose you will output the error messages in an HTML window. To  
jump to a given file and a given line you can use TextMate's URL scheme.

see at http://macromates.com/textmate/manual/ 
using_textmate_from_terminal section 21.2

Each error would be written as an HTML link à la: <a href="txmt:// 
open/?url=file://./test.erl&line=5">test.erl:5: syntax error  

You wrote "...highlight the region of the error ...". This would mean  
you have a specific range. But AFAIK one only gets the line number.  
Or am I wrong?

Which TMTOOLS function do you would need for that?
