Provides clean exception formatting as a string, which resembles native output formats for back-traces that kill the interpreter. Whilst there are shorter, simpler ways to format ruby exceptions, this format is almost as short, but provides the format that young ruby programmers will be familiar with, and can be used to keep logs and output data consistent with other areas of the platform.
At present the only provided format is that which is generated by MRI 1.8.x.
Supports MRI (ruby 1.8.x) style exception formats
Kinda a big package, for 3 LoC.
Should probably be part of the platform.
... begin raise "boom" rescue => e puts e.to_s_mri end ...
Outputs something like:
boomtest.rb:18:in `go': boom (RuntimeError) from boomtest.rb:34:in `foo' from boomtest.rb:36
bacon for the spec suite
gem install exception_string
Add other interpreter exception formats, if there are any variances.
