This thread seems very close to a thread about two weeks ago entitled
"Automatic backtrace". Its topic was automating a default "panic action"
at configure time, taking into account the myriad quirks of OSes,
compilers and debuggers. The default would do its best to obtain a
backtrace into a file in a simple and reliable way. (Naturally, there
would need to be override capability for the experts who want to dive
I think we reached the conclusion that it would be possible, and that a
fair amount of table-driven work, at both configure-time and compile-time
would be necessary.
Any progress on this? I cannot commit much time to it. But if I knew
that any such time would be likely to have a fruitful outcome and
reception, then I'd see about warping time a little...
