Call Stack

Hi,

I was wondering if it is possible to reproduce the call stack information in a compiled binary as if you had pressed CTRL+L in devel.,

i.e.

private sub whatever()
  on error goto errHandler

  ...

errHandler:
  if err.number <> 0 then
    msgbox callStack
  endif
end sub

public function callStack() as string
  //gathers and returns a string containing the call stack
end function

Any ideas?

Thanx

PS I will adjust the points as necassary.

We had this question not long ago.

The answer was something along the lines of:
Create your own 'stack' object (with push, pop, etc).  Each time you enter/leave a procedure, you 'push' the procedure name onto the stack, then 'pop' the name off again once you leave the procedure.  This'll keep track of where you are in the call stack.
Of course, you need to hard-code in each procedure name.
