How do I show complete java exception trace, not "... 5 more"

I'm debugging a java class (from SourceForge) from the command line.  With some input files, it throws an exception and prints a bunch of trace information -- but not all it has.  It terminates with "... 5 more".

this addresses the issue

But is there a way to get the java runtime to print the entire trace rather than truncating it?

Thanks!

Try calling getStackTrace () and print it yourself:

Otherwise try printStackTrace ( out ) ; and write it to a file, see if it helps.
