I've worked on stack tracing in the past; specifically for the MSVC compiled code.

My experience is that the stack is difficult to follow in debug builds and close to impossible in release builds. Highly optimized code sometimes discards the notion of a stack altogether in certain cases.

I'm curious how you're going to accomplish this feat and make it portable too?

If you are successful, this would definitely be a valuable tool to have.
