Is it possible to get the file and line number where a call was made to a function?

Yes for the current line and file you can use the magic constants __LINE__ and __FILE__.

For the call stack, you can use debug_backtrace() (http://uk3.php.net/debug_backtrace) though you'll want to run that through var_dump(). It will give you an array of arrays with things like function names, line numbers etc.
