Wolf Software Backtrace Library

Backtrace is a C library that replicates the bt functionality from gdb. This can be used on code as it is developed and on live code, to allow function stack tracing without having to run under gdb. This library will display the file name, function name, and line number in the backtrace, and will work even with a stripped binary.

        Release Notes: This version includes MySQL logging support by using the logdb library. By default, the logging is done to a file via the logfile library, but by adding --enable-logdb to the configure options you can use MySQL instead. The backtrace_logfile function has been renamed to init_backtrace, where you pass either a logfile name or your database connection details.
