Rubyw, RuntimeError, capturing the stack, FXRuby

Let’s say I’m running rubyw and a RunTimeError is raised …

and I’m using FXRuby (which is tangential to this question) …

and I want to put up a errorbox …

But I want to capture the error message that would normally go to
stdout, i.e. the call stack …

How would I capture the call stack to a string in a raised exception?


begin
raise RuntimeError, “Something bad happened”
rescue

What do I do here?

end


begin
puts 1/0
rescue Exception, NameError => e
print “this is an error [#{e}]”
print $!.inspect #Ruby places a reference to the associated Exception
object into the global variable $!
end

output: this is an error [divided by 0]#<ZeroDivisionError: divided by
0>

Joseph,

This does not give the call stack with file names and line numbers of
the exception.

Thanks.

Ralph

Use Exception#backtrace:

irb(main):001:0> begin
irb(main):002:1* raise “Error”
irb(main):003:1> rescue => e
irb(main):004:1> puts e.backtrace
