  I have a macro which I'm using for my exceptions. It
  passes '__FILE__', '__LINE__', if the compiler supports
  it, '__func__' (or whatever's the compilers equivalent),
  and, if the user wants, also '__DATE__' and '__TIME__'.
  At the point of definition of this macro those decisions
  are settled. Then I always use it (instead of using e.g.
  '__FILE__' directly.)
