Crate debugtrace [] [src]

This crate enables backtraces to be attached to values in debug and test builds without incurring a cost in release or bench builds.

It uses the selected build-profile to determine if backtraces should be collected. On debug and test backtraces are collected and will be printed if the value is printed using fmt::Debug ({:?}). In release and bench profiles Trace will only be a newtype wrapper making it zero-overhead.

Note that this crate operates under the same restrictions that backtrace does which means that file and line-number information is not always available.


debugtrace = "0.1.0"


extern crate debugtrace;

use debugtrace::Trace;

fn foo() -> Trace<u32> {

fn main () {
    let e = foo();

    println!("{:?}", e);

This will output something like the following when built with debug or test profiles:

123 at
   0       0x104f888d8 - foo::h83f9455bde0e24228Oe (src/
   1       0x104f8978b - main::hd70e3ccce038deb2gPe (src/

   5       0x104f8fb69 - main (<unknown>:<unknown>)

When built using release or bench profiles it will not collect any backtrace and will only output:



  • backtrace:

    This will force backtraces to be collected no matter what profile is used. It also includes the Trace::resolve() method to programmatically obtain the stacktrace.



Wrapper type containing a value and the backtrace to the address where it was wrapped.
