TraceDepth

TraceDepth
is an option for Trace and related functions which specifies the maximum nesting of evaluation chains that are to be included.

DetailsDetails

  • Setting TraceDepth->n keeps only parts down to level n in nested lists generated by Trace.
  • By setting TraceDepth, you can make Trace and related functions skip over "inner" parts of a computation, making their operation more efficient.
