Module Printexc


module Printexc: sig .. end
Facilities for printing exceptions.

val to_string : exn -> string
Printexc.to_string e returns a string representation of the exception e.
val print : ('a -> 'b) -> 'a -> 'b
Printexc.print fn x applies fn to x and returns the result. If the evaluation of fn x raises any exception, the name of the exception is printed on standard error output, and the exception is raised again. The typical use is to catch and report exceptions that escape a function application.
val catch : ('a -> 'b) -> 'a -> 'b
Printexc.catch fn x is similar to Printexc.print, but aborts the program with exit code 2 after printing the uncaught exception. This function is deprecated: the runtime system is now able to print uncaught exceptions as precisely as Printexc.catch does. Moreover, calling Printexc.catch makes it harder to track the location of the exception using the debugger or the stack backtrace facility. So, do not use Printexc.catch in new code.
val print_backtrace : out_channel -> unit
Printexc.print_backtrace oc prints an exception backtrace on the output channel oc. The backtrace lists the program locations where the most-recently raised exception was raised and where it was propagated through function calls.
val get_backtrace : unit -> string
Printexc.get_backtrace () returns a string containing the same exception backtrace that Printexc.print_backtrace would print.
val record_backtrace : bool -> unit
Printexc.record_backtrace b turns recording of exception backtraces on (if b = true) or off (if b = false). Initially, backtraces are not recorded, unless the b flag is given to the program through the OCAMLRUNPARAM variable.
val backtrace_status : unit -> bool
Printexc.backtrace_status() returns true if exception backtraces are currently recorded, false if not.
