Implementing a error debug info reporting

Hi Experts,

I am writing a simple logging utility for my application.  Basically, I have four different reporting to be done.
1. Informational logs
2. Debug logs
3. Error logs
4. Warning logs.

I want to be able to do something like the following

LOG( INFORMATIONAL, "fileName", "an information message");
LOG(DEBUG, "fileName", "a debug message"); etc....

I believe I can do this with simple MACRO definitions and cout.....

Can somebody give some suggestions?  It would be better if I can implement that as a class....
I was thinking the following way, but then the problem is that I have to create an object to call the function LOGGER.  That would not be nice.  So, can I put that instantiation of the class into a macro so that to hide it.  I will make it a sigleton object.

#include <iostream>
#include <string>

using namespace std;


/////////#define LOGGER(a, b, c) SimpleLog(a, b, c);

class SimpleLogger
{

public:
      
      typedef enum LogType_t{
            LOG_INFO,
            LOG_DEBUG,
            LOG_WARNING,
            LOG_ERROR
      }LogType;


public:
      SimpleLogger(){};
      void SimpleLog( LogType_t type, string fileName, string msg );
private:


};

void SimpleLogger::SimpleLog(LogType_t type, string fileName, string msg )
{

      if ( type == LOG_INFO ) {
            cout << "INFO" << " " << fileName << " " << msg << endl;
      }
      else if( type == LOG_DEBUG ) {
            cout << "DEBUG" << " " << fileName << " "<< msg << endl;
      }

}



void main()
{

      SimpleLogger *logger = new SimpleLogger();
      logger->LOGGER( SimpleLogger::LOG_INFO, "myfile", "just a string...");

}




Thanks a lot.
