Sample code invoking the callStackDump function

In this example, the factorial of a number is computed. The example is similar to the example for CallStackGet except that the function used here is callStackDump.callfact.cfm

<cfinclude template="fact.cfm">
<cfcatch type="any">


<cffunction name="factorial" hint="returns the factorial of a number" output="true">
       <cfargument name="n" required="yes" type="numeric" hint="The number for which the factorial is returned" />
       <cfif n eq 1>
              <cfset callStackDump()>
              <cfreturn 1>
              <cfset callStackDump()>
              <cfreturn n * factorial(n - 1)>
<cfoutput>Factorial of 5 - #factorial(5)#</cfoutput>
