I do not know if this is relevant to you but here is one link:

http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/MathSource/678/

Anyway Trace has some undocumentated in the Help Browser
options that might be interesting for you.

Execute tha following commands
(I have converted everything to Inputform)

Options[Trace]
(Information[Evaluate[#1[[1]]]] & ) /@ %;

TraceInternal is one of them

Information[TraceInternal]
"TraceInternal is an option for Trace and related functions which, if
True or False, specifies whether to trace evaluations of expressions
generated internally by Mathematica. The intermediate Automatic setting
traces a selected set of internal
evaluations including Messages and sets or unsets of visible symbols."
Attributes[TraceInternal] = {Protected}

For example

Simplify[x^2 + 2*x + 1]
(1 + x)^2In[43]:=

Trace[Simplify[x^2 + 2*x + 1], TraceInternal -> True]
{{HoldForm[x^2 + 2*x + 1], HoldForm[1 + 2*x + x^2]},
HoldForm[Simplify[1 + 2*x + x^2]],  {HoldForm[$Assumptions],
HoldForm[True]}, {{HoldForm[N[300]], HoldForm[300.]},
HoldForm[Floor[300.]], HoldForm[300]},
  {{{{HoldForm[N[300]], HoldForm[300.]}, HoldForm[Mod[300., 1]],
HoldForm[0.]}, HoldForm[1000000*0.], HoldForm[0.]},
   HoldForm[Ceiling[0.]], HoldForm[0]}, {HoldForm[General::meprec],
   HoldForm["Internal precision limit $MaxExtraPrecision = `1` reached
while evaluating `2`."]},
  {HoldForm[Off[General::meprec]], {HoldForm[General::meprec],
    HoldForm["Internal precision limit $MaxExtraPrecision = `1` reached
while evaluating `2`."]}, HoldForm[Null]},
  {HoldForm[On[General::meprec]], {HoldForm[General::meprec],
    HoldForm[$Off["Internal precision limit $MaxExtraPrecision = `1`
reached while evaluating `2`."]]}, HoldForm[Null]},
  HoldForm[(1 + x)^2]}

Execute

Trace[FullSimplify[x^2 + 2*x + 1], TraceInternal -> True]

to see the difference.

Dimitris
