This module prints function trace to stdout from the moment it is called:
import xtrace xtrace.start() ... xtrace.stop()
It is also possible to call xtrace as module from the command line:
python -m xtrace <script.py> [param] ...
or use as a standalone script:
python xtrace.py <script.py> [param] ...
The output format is that of Xdebug http://xdebug.org/docs/execution_trace But frankly, I didn't have time to polish it to be exactly the same. If you will find the time and desire to polish it - feel free to send a patch.
This code is released into public domain. Hope you'll find it useful.
