A version of extract_stack that only returns filenames and line numbers.



Callers often only require filenames and line numbers, and do not need the additional information gathered by extract_stack, as they never call convert_stack.

As a further optimisation, we allow users to specify a limit on the number of frames examined.


  • max_length: The maximum length of stack to extract.


A list of FileAndLine objects corresponding to the call stack of the current thread.
