Subject Re: Task name which called a method
Date Fri, 29 Jan 2010 16:25:09 GMT

Thanks for the quick response...

I'm wanting to try and figure out the task name from within a method called
from the task as opposed to within the task itself. 

I had hoped there would be some sort of callstack or scope kept by buildr or
something I could tap into to get that information while within the
print_task_name method. In my real-world example I'm doing some other system
calls, testing the result and hoping to fail the build with a message that
has the task name in it. It sounds like I would have to add the '|t|' to
each task and pass it into each method call. I was hoping to avoid doing
that for every task and call to my method (keeping it a bit DRYer).

Any other thoughts?
