Summary0001188: Improve stacktraces inside catch blocks
DescriptionTry to debug this code:


function a() {

function b() {

function c() {
    throw new \Exception();

try {
} catch (\Exception $e) {

Open this code in IDE, i.e. PhpStorm put breakpoint to `xdebug_break();` statement, and run script. On script breaks, try to look to stacktrace. You will see only `main()` call (see attached screenshot). But *real* stacktrace is:

- xdebug_trace.php:16 (call to function a)
- xdebug_trace.php:4 (call to function b)
- xdebug_trace.php:8 (call to function c)
- xdebug_trace.php:12 (throwing new exception in function c)
- xdebug)trace.php:18 (catching thac exception)

It would be great improvement, if caught stacktrace be closer to real stack trace

At the moment your exception is caught, the whole stack has been rolled up already. That means that because it's not there, we can't show it any more.

If you want to see the full stack when an exception gets thrown in PHP Storm, set an Exception break point on "Exception" or "*".
