What is a cryptic call stack?
I have taken programming classes before but never had I heard about a cryptic call stack. What is it?
I'm assuming it's referring to a call stack that is outside of your code or where stack frames are missing. Breaking execution in a thread operated by the OS (ntdll.dll anyone?), or a crash resulting from undefined behavior (that happens outside your code) can lead to call stacks that you usually can't make sense of.
