The file-location package

[Tags:bsd3, library, test]

Common debugging/error/exception functions that give file location information

> $(err "OH NO!") > > main:Main main.hs:16:1 OH NO!

Notice how it displays package:module file:line:character It exposes the functions err (error), undef (undefined), and trc (Debug.Trace.trace). All of these behave the same as their normal counterpart but also spit out a location.

Here is my favorite helper, debug, which is like trace but just show the value.

> debug [1,2,3] > > DEBUG: [1,2,3] > [1,2,3]

And The Template Haskell version.

> $(dbg) [1,2,3] > > DEBUG main:Main main.hs:1:3 [1,2,3] > [1,2,3]

Also there is a version of thrwIO that gives location information > ($(thrwIO) $ AException) `catch` \e -> putStrLn ("Caught " ++ show (e :: AException)) > > Caught AException "main:Main test/main.hs:25:6"

See module for a listing of all the functions with short descriptions, and the homepage for some more examples https://github.com/gregwebs/ErrorLocation.hs
