The extraction logic here is heuristic and may fail you. Don’t depend on it for any life or death situations. Also, please submit feedback on how it could be improved!

## Installational

Clone this repository and install with

python install

This adds a utility called exception or exception.exe to your path.

## Usage

To extract the Python tracebacks from a log called _logfile.txt_, run:

$ exception -f logfile.txt

If you want to exclude certain exceptions, try:

$ exception -f logfile.txt -e ValueError,AttributeError

You can all pass multiple filenames:

$ exception -f logfile1.txt logfile2.txt

This would exclude would exclude any ValueError or AttributeError tracebacks from the output.

The tool can also read the log file from stdout, e.g.:

cat logfile.txt | exception


cat logfile.txt | exception -e ValueError
