Ok. I have committed a change in pydb sources to deal with the 2 and 3
argument linecache.getline interface which should cover Python
releases both before and after version 2.5.
Many thanks! I should have dug deeper myself.
For pdb/bdb though isn't there still a problem in reporting the file
location? There is that weird "build" name that seems to be stored in
func_code.co_filename mentioned in the original post.
I just tried patching pdb/bdb along from the current 2.6 svn sources
and here is what I see:
$ pdb /tmp/lc.py
-> import tracer
The above filename is wrong. It's very possible I did something wrong,
so I'd be grateful if someone else double checked.
Furthermore, if there is a problem I'm not sure I see how to fix this.
I can think of heuristics to tell if module lives an inside an egg,
but is there a reliable way? Is there a standard convention for
reporting a file location inside of an egg?
