call [2006/07/25 21:22] (current)
Line 1: Line 1:
 +[[CALL]] produces a gdb/​dbx-like stack trace of the alias currently being
 +executed. ​ It returns a list of the commands currently being executed,
 +tracing back from the current command, to the command that called it,
 +and so forth until the [[CALL]] command itself it listed. ​ A deeply nested
 +alias might have the following alias stack:
 +      [ 0] call
 +      [ 1] go
 +      [ 2] get_set
 +      [ 3] get_ready
 +      [ 4] on_your_marks
 +      [ 5] /superalias
 +In this example, [[CALL]] was run from the "​go"​ alias, which in turn was
 +called from "​get_set",​ which was called from "​get_ready",​ and so on, all
 +the way down to the original command executed.
 +Command names appear precisely as they are typed in (which means, if
 +an alias is called with a / in front of it, the slash will appear in
 +the stack listing). ​ Additionally,​ in the (unlikely) event that EPIC
 +were to crash, [[CALL]] is executed before the client terminates, to aid
 +in debugging.
 +[[CALL]] first appeared in EPIC3.001.
