I've been looking at the trace module, and although it looks useful, I'm
surprised that there aren't a couple of features that I would have thought
would be fairly basic. So, does trace support (for the --trace option):
- indentation tracking stacklevel (where each function is prefixed
by tabs equal to the number of stacklevels deep in the program)
- output to something other than sys.stdout (eg. output to a file
specified either by environmental variable or by parameter).
- mult-threaded programs going to multiple output handles,
especially in light of the above
- fully qualified python modules in path: (eg:
/path/to/module/my_module.py(1): print "HERE"
my_module.py(1): print "HERE".
Ultimately, I'd like to be able to look at two runs of a program
and be able to pinpoint the very first difference
between thembased on the output of their trace runs. As it
stands, I really can't do this.
Of course I could implement the above, but I was
hoping to avoid duplicated effort if someone has
already implemented options like this..I posted the above to
the python-dev list, they suggested I take it here, so any help
would be appreciated.
