Suggestion - naming the log file

Post by DFH » Tue Jan 26, 2016 2:11 am

Here's a useful suggestion.

Instead of logging all filters to the one file called textpipe.log (wherever you happen to be),
how about automatically naming the log file after the filtername?

i.e. For a filter called mylatestfilter.fll the log file would be called mylatestfilter.textpipe.log

Wouldn't that be neat?

Then if you're running and developing several different filters, you'd always know which log file was which.
And you'd never "destroy the evidence" by overwriting the log from one filter by the newer log for another.

Nice idea.

As it turns out, the log filename does not support macros (yet). I will change this.
As a default,

Code: Select all

would be great.
