Manually printing traceback?

If I run this code: l = ; print l, I get a traceback.
If I change it to:
l = 
try: print l
I get a tuple, 3rd element of which is the traceback object. How do i print
it? I tried doing print sys.exc_info()() but that doesn't work. I also
read libref and langref and i couldn't find anything enlightening on this.
I found a post where paul prescott asks a similar question and gvr tells him
that you basically have to read code for some debugger, or something of this
sort.. that's over my head, i'm afraid.
The reason i ask is that my program (cymbaline) doesn't print out exceptions
that it raises. I have no idea why.. I don't have any big chunks in try:
except: catch-all blocks.. So, alternatively, if i knew what else could be
causing this, i wouldn't need the answer the my first question. I just need
the answer to either one :P
