Add a tracing functionality to Vala
Submitted by Anirudh Sanjeev
Created attachment 247356 Patch to add trace functionality
This patch adds a new argument
--enable-trace to valac which enables tracing the path the program is taking, by printing the name of each function that is executed to stdout.
The benefit of this is that it will help someone quickly identify relevant functions in an unfamiliar codebase. Enabling tracing and reproducing a bug will give a user a starting point of functions to look at, improving developer productivity.
