        // For capturing the traceback of try/except. I find this to be most useful 
// when developing code to handle ajax callbacks; you can return the traceback
// and view the error in the browser by putting the message in a javascript
// alert function.

try:
    # Your code here
except:
    import traceback
    txt=traceback.format_exc()
