Ruby Kernel: caller

caller(start=1, length=nil)
→ array or nil
Returns the current execution stack—an array containing strings in the form file:line or file:line: in `method'. The optional start parameter determines the number of initial stack entries to omit from the top of the stack. A second optional length parameter can be used to limit how many entries are returned from the stack. Returns nil if start is greater than the size of current execution stack. Optionally you can pass a range, which will return an array containing the entries within the specified range. []
