hello
I’m trying to make myself a better logging class, I got all the basic down and it works adequately and i getting ready to add the advances features...
i am using Visual studio 6, NOT vs.net

i was wondering how i would show the function that the log() function was called from
ie:  [CFooClass::FooMethod()]
and from what file and line it came from.
ie:  [File: C:\cpp\logy\log.cpp line: 195]

in the end i want something like this.
ie
[Fri Nov 07 15:48:38 2003] [File: C:\cpp\logy\log.cpp line: 195] [CFooClass::FooMethod()] this is an error message

i see this done in .net
http://www.codeproject.com/managedcpp/smartlog.asp
and in a lot of other games and appz when they crash.
So It must be possible

Well, I use VC .NET, but I'd assume that VC 6 should also have the ANSI standard macros for determining filenames.

__DATE__
__FILE__
__LINE__
__STDC__
__TIME__
__TIMESTAMP__

If you use those in your code, the compiler should recognize them. If not, then try to use a compiler flag to force ANSI compliance. I know VC6 isn't very compliant in comparison to .NET, but this seems simple enough.

Looks good, thanks funvill. If i make any changes to it or have any comments I'll e-mail you.

Only one nitpick, flages is actually spelled flags:) But that is easily fixed with a search and replace.

Otherwise *deletes her own log function* it looks very good. Thanks for sharing.

What sort of project are you working on as a matter of interest?
