Adds methods to RubyVM::DebugInspector to allow for inspection of backtrace frames. The debug_inspector C extension and API were designed and built by Koichi Sasada, this project is just a gemification of his work. This library makes use of the debug inspector API which was added to MRI 2.0.0. Only works on MRI 2 and 3. Requiring it on unsupported Rubies will result in a no-op. Recommended for use only in debugging situations. Do not use this in production apps.

debug_inspector

A Ruby wrapper for the MRI 2.0+ debug_inspector API

The debug_inspector C extension and API were designed and built by Koichi Sasada, this project is just a gemification of his work.

NOTES:

  • Do not use this library outside of debugging situations.
  • This library makes use of the debug inspector API which was new in MRI 2.0.0.
  • Only works on MRI 2 and 3. Requiring it on unsupported Rubies will result in a no-op

Usage

require 'debug_inspector'

# Open debug context
# Passed `dc' is only active in a block
RubyVM::DebugInspector.open { |dc|
  # backtrace locations (returns an array of Thread::Backtrace::Location objects)
  locs = dc.backtrace_locations

  # you can get depth of stack frame with `locs.size'
  locs.size.times do |i|
    # binding of i-th caller frame (returns a Binding object or nil)
    p dc.frame_binding(i)

    # iseq of i-th caller frame (returns a RubyVM::InstructionSequence object or nil)
    p dc.frame_iseq(i)

    # class of i-th caller frame
    p dc.frame_class(i)
  end
}

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
