Summary0001561: WISH: uncaught exception trace capture...
DescriptionFull_Name: chris quinn
Version: 3.06
Submission from: (


it would be very nice if in building a debug application version
an access to the trace (as per ocamlrun -b) for logging purposes and perhaps
allowing continued execution/reset.

stderr and a shell wrapper is awkward and complicates matters, and should
be reserved for really catastrophic events like segfaults.
keeping such error handling within the app is neat and portable.

how about a

val trace: exn -> string

or if above not appropriate,

val capture_trace: (string -> unit) -> ('a -> 'b) -> 'a -> 'b

addition to Printexc?
