log_file


Specify the name of a log file

Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): STRING

Default: JEGAGlobal.log

Description

New as of JEGA v2.0 is the introduction of the log_file specification. JEGA now uses a logging library to output messages and status to the user. JEGA can be configured at build time to log to both the console window and a text file, one or the other, or neither. The log_file input is a string name of a file into which to log. If the build was configured without file logging in JEGA, this input is ignored. If file logging is enabled and no log_file is specified, the default file name of JEGAGlobal.log is used.
