When a program fails it may print a stacktrace to help the programmer locate the source of the failure. The text can be completely arcane when read from another perspective; the perspective of the non-author, or a non-programmer.

        at de.waldheinz.fs.fat.Fat.create(
        at de.waldheinz.fs.fat.SuperFloppyFormatter.format(

Not a stack trace but a program reaper.
