Getting the Most Out of a Python Traceback (Summary)
The Python traceback contains useful information that can help you find what is going wrong in your Python code. These tracebacks can look a little intimidating, but once you break it down to see what it’s trying to show you, they can be super helpful.
Going through a few tracebacks line by line will give you a better understanding of the information they contain and help you get the most out of them. Getting a Python traceback output when you run your code is an opportunity to improve your code. It’s one way Python tries to help you out.
Now that you know how to read a Python traceback, you can benefit from learning more about some tools and techniques for diagnosing the problems that your traceback output is telling you about. Python’s built-in
traceback module can be used to work with and inspect tracebacks. The
traceback module can be helpful when you need to get more out of the traceback output. It would also be helpful to learn more about some techniques for debugging your Python code.
