Is there a method for returning the current line in a SilkTest script?

Is there a method for returning the current line in a SilkTest script?

There are a number of details that can be returned during the execution of a SilkTest script by using the CALL datatype. The CALL datatype is defined as

type CALL is record
       STRING sFunction
       STRING sModule
       INTEGER iLine

  • iLine - The line number in the script where the call or exception occurred (INTEGER)
  • sFunction - The name of the function in which the call or exception occurred (STRING)
  • sModule - The name of the file that contains sFunction (STRING)

This can simply be called in a script as shown below:

[-] PrintLineNumber (LIST OF CALL lcCalls)
    [ ] CALL call
    [-] for each call in lcCalls
        [ ] Print ("MODULE: {call.sModule}",
             "FUNCTION: {call.sFunction}",
             "LINE: {call.iLine}")
    [ ] 
[-] testcase printline () appstate none
    [ ] 
    [-] do 
        [ ] verify(1,2)
    [-] except
        [ ] PrintLineNumber(ExceptCalls())
[ ] 
[ ] 
[-] main()
    [ ] Print("start")
    [ ] printline()
    [ ] Print("another line")
    [ ] printline()
