For test purposes/ex post inspection you could also uncomment the line in:

def f(a=1):
    return a+b

then it is more easy and you can get it like:


You can also create a total stack trace dynamically with this trick function:

def mktb():
    try: raise UserWarning
    except: return sys.exc_info()[2]

def f(a=1):
    global ftb;ftb=mktb()
    return a+b

and then fully inspect the total situation in the func (and all down the call history) ex post at any time with

>>> f()
>>> pdb.post_mortem(module.ftb)               # then do once 'up' in pdb/pywin.debugger...
>>> pywin.debugger.post_mortem(module.ftb)

Which other programming language can do things like this? 
( Unfortunately (legacy) Python has no possibility to (re-)continue execution from exceptions/traces other than by simple generators )
