There is good example to log to either console or file. But how do you configure to log to console and file at the same time?

I am using Boost 1.55.0

Thanks

You could add multiple sinks to the logger, e.g. like

boost::log::sinks::synchronous_sink< boost::log::sinks::text_file_backend> fileSink;
boost::log::sinks::synchronous_sink< boost::log::sinks::text_ostream_backend> consoleSink;

//...

boost::log::core::get()->add_sink(fileSink);
boost::log::core::get()->add_sink(consoleSink);
