       Devel::Callsite - Get caller return OP address and Perl interpreter context


         use Devel::Callsite;
         my $site = sub { return callsite() };
         my $op_addr = $site->();
         printf "OP location: 0x%x\n", $op_addr;   # prints caller OP location
         printf "OP location: 0x%x\n", $site->(); # prints a different OP location

         sub foo { return callsite(1) };
         sub bar { foo() };
         # print this OP location even though it is 2 levels up the call chain.
         printf "OP location: 0x%x\n", bar();

         if ($] >= 5.025) {
           printf "OP is: %s\n", addr_to_op($addr);
           my $get_op = sub { return caller_nextop() };
           printf "OP is now: %s\n", $get_op->();

         print context(), "\n"; # prints the interpreter context, an unsigned number

       Running the above gives:

         OP location: 0x5572e41f89f8
         OP location: 0x5572e421f5b0
         OP is: B::NULL=SCALAR(0x5572e41d0578)
         OP location: 0x5572e421f010
         OP is now: B::LISTOP=SCALAR(0x5572e41d0578)


           $callsite = callsite();
           $callsite = callsite($level);

       This function returns the the OP address of the caller, a number. It can take an optional
       integer specifying the number of levels back to get the OP address. If no parameter is
       given, a value of 0 is used which means to go up one level in the call chain. This
       behavior is like the built-in function "caller".

       This value is useful for functions that need to uniquely know where they were called, such
       as "Every::every()"; see Every. Or it can be used to pinpoint a location with finer
       granularity than a line number <>. In conjunction
       with an OP tree disassembly you can know exactly where the caller is located in the Perl

       As of version 0.08, this function will return the expected call site for functions called
       via "DB::sub". (Previously it returned a call site inside the debugger.) If "callsite" is
       called from package "DB" in list context, it will return two numbers. The first is the
       ordinary return value; the second is the 'true' call site of the function in question,
       which may be different if "DB::sub" is in use.

       For now this is only in 5.026 or greater.

           $op = caller_nextop();
           $op = caller_nextop($level);

       For now this is only in 5.026 or greater.

           $op = caller_nextop();
           $op = caller_nextop($level);

       This function returns the the "B::OP", not the address, of the next OP to get run after
       the call is made. It is equivalent to:


           $context = context()

       This function returns the interpreter context as a number. Using "callsite" alone to
       identify the call site is not reliable in programs which may include multiple Perl
       interpreters, such as when using ithreads. Combining "callsite" with "context" gives a
       unique location.


       Ben Morrow conceived this and posted it to perl5-porters. Ted Zlatanov then turned it into
       a CPAN module which he maintained for the first 3 revisions. Ben also added the level
       parameter to callsite.

       ikegami provided the function to turn the address into a real "B::OP".

       It is currently maintained (or not) by Rocky Bernstein.


       B::Concise to disassemble the OP tree. Devel::Trepan optionally uses Devel::Callsite to
       show you exactly where you are stopped inside the debugger.
