What is the purpose of this pull request? (put an "X" next to item)
[X] Other, please explain:
When there's an exception thrown by the parser, currently ESLint swallows this exception.
This is fine for end users, as it allows ESLint to provide a nicer experience, but can make it hard for parser developers to debug problems when reported by users.
This change simply adds a debug log message which includes the exception stack when a parser exception occurs.
That way we can just instruct users to run
eslint --debugso we can get the exception stack (amongst other things) from them.
