Backtrace for passing specs via custom formatter


#1

Hi,

I’m using example.implementation_backtrace in a custom formatter to
get the path of the file a passing spec belongs to. Following rspec on
github I saw that implementation_backtrace is now deprecated and
replaced by example.backtrace. Sadly it always returns nil for passed
specs. So I had a look at the source and found that backtrace only
gets assigned if line_number was set.

Can anybody tell me why this was changed to only work with line_number
set and if there is another way to get the file a spec belongs to.

Thanks for your help!

Hey Andreas,

I asked for that in the context of another refactoring in the interest
of efficiency. I though that it was only being used for --line.

I’ve just pushed code back up that removes this errant optimization so
you should be good - however, you should use #backtrace instead of
#implementation_backtrace.

Good?
