Simply print current function name

Hi all,

When developing, I hate having to search in which portion of my code I am. For Tippy, I searched for a way to always display the function name in case of an error.

Hopefully, Python offers a simple (but curious) way to perform this.

Here is how to print your function name as a string in Python :

{% highlight python %}
import sys

def tutut():
Dum function displaying its name!
print sys._getframe().f_code.co_name

if name == 'main':
{% endhighlight %}

And here is the result

{% highlight bash %}
[airballman@ubuntu:~]$ python
{% endhighlight %}

There it is !
