Suggestion to enhance log output

Postby DFH » Sun Feb 05, 2012 2:18 am

Here's a suggestion to help debug structured filters:

Echo the first line of each comment filter to the log output.

Then the user can quickly focus his attention to the part of the log file that needs it.

This could even be made an optional setting by providing a suitable tickbox in Filter options.

Hi David - not easy, as these filters are removed when the filter are compiled.

When you move to use XML for the underlying data structure for filters, would it become any easier?

The XML is purely for saving/loading to disk or other streams. Although it may be used internally as well, it doesn't effect the compiled structure of the filters, which is much more compact and the objects are highly specific - eg the sort filter can create one of 4 different filtering objects, and some 'visual' filters such as the mainframe copybook filter can create huge structures of filters to perform their dirty work.
