Description

In Feature #3917 it is mentioned short-coming of caller:

  • caller() returns an array of "filename:linenum in `method'" string. User must parse it and retrieve filename and linenum by rexp. It is also very heavy weight task.

I think many have wished for objectified trace.

caller[0].file
caller[0].line
caller[0].in

Different method would be needed than #caller though to prevent backward compatibility issue.
