Just in case you don't know the possibility: you can already get the current lfun name with debug_info(). Or you just use debug_info() to dump some more info in addition to the name.
You might argue that is consumes more ressources than necessary, but then errors should be the exception, I guess.

Depending on the error it might also be a good idea to dump/store the whole stacktrace to be able to trace the source of error. At least I made the experience, that the plain info "error in function xy" usually does not help me too much.

I agree with Zesstra that a __FUNCTION__ predefine is of limited use. But it's not hard to implement if we want it:

Yay, somebody submitted a patch. :-)
I don't have anything against it, so from my side feel free to apply it to the trunk.

(ok, now we only need to finally migrate our main repository to github...)

do you want to take care of committing this? If not, re-assign to me.
I have a comment after all: I am not sure, if the name in inline closures should not be the auto-generated name for the inline, because technically it is another function...?

BTW: We moved the primary source repository now to, so please either push your changes to or file a pull request against it. :-)
