[erlang-questions] How to interpret lambda stacktrace?

The first part of the name, -amm_handle_ev/3- in your case is the
function name/arity in which the fun or comprehension is defined.
Then:

- for a fun this is followed by -fun- and the index of the fun within
the defining function. So "-fun-5-" means the fifth fun within the
function, as a whole.

- for a comprehension it is "-lc$^" and the index of the comprehension
within the module. It can be either "lc", "blc" or "lbc" depending on
type of comprehension. The "$^" has no significance as such.

These are basically just funny names which are most likely unique. Two
important points:

- NO this naming is not defined anywhere, it is purely internal.
- NO there is no guarantee that it won't be changed in the future.

So use it for info but be warned.
