Error.stack


In the statically typed code world I used to inhabit Call stacks were often used to diagnose the root cause of events. I wasn’t aware that JavaScript had a similar (albeit non ECMA5) way of performing error stack interrogation. It’s called Error.stack

It makes bugs -particularly those ones that are deep inside of anonymous functions - easier to research.

The IE blog has a rather good overview: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ie/archive/2012/05/10/diagnosing-javascript-errors-faster-with-error-stack.aspx
