Boost log - how to make Line number and Function name appear in the log message

I find some words explaining  to use BOOST_LOG_FUNCTION() to mark the scope of the function as you enter the function

.Prior to the log message, you hae to include  BOOST_LOG_NAMED_SCOPE();

Any good example to see how it should be done.  I can not figure it hoe to add line number and function name (or file name) into the log message.

I wonder if it is possible to selective added the line_number and function name to certain log message but not all.  How can that be done with boost

You'll find a decent example here http://sourceforge.net/p/boost-log/discussion/710022/thread/c728c333#7821. Anyway, the scoop is

// TestLogging.cpp
#include <exception>
#include <string>
#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <boost/shared_ptr.hpp>
#include <boost/foreach.hpp>
#include <boost/ref.hpp>
#include <boost/log/core.hpp>
#include <boost/log/common.hpp>
#include <boost/log/attributes.hpp>
#include <boost/log/core/record.hpp>
#include <boost/log/utility/init/from_stream.hpp>
#include <boost/log/utility/init/common_attributes.hpp>
#include <boost/log/utility/init/formatter_parser.hpp>
namespace logging   = boost::log;
namespace attrs     = boost::log::attributes;
namespace src       = boost::log::sources;
using boost::shared_ptr;

{
    normal,
    notification,
    warning,
    error,
    critical
};

struct scope_list_formatter
{
    typedef void result_type;
    typedef attrs::basic_named_scope<char>::scope_stack scope_stack;
    explicit scope_list_formatter(std::string const& name) :
        name_(name)
    {
    }
    void operator()(std::ostream& strm, logging::record const& rec) const
    {
        logging::extract<scope_stack> (
                name_,
                rec.attribute_values(),
                bind(&scope_list_formatter::format, boost::ref(strm),
                _1)
        );
    }

    return types::formatter_type(scope_list_formatter(attr_name));
}
int init_logging()
{
    std::ifstream settings("logging.conf");
    if (!settings.is_open())
    {
        std::cout << "Could not open logging.conf file" << std::endl;
        return -1;
    }
    logging::init_from_stream(settings);
    logging::add_common_attributes();
    //shared_ptr< logging::attribute > attr_scope(new attrs::named_scope);
    //logging::core::get()->add_global_attribute("Scope", attr_scope);
    shared_ptr< logging::attribute > attr_scope(new attrs::named_scope);
    logging::core::get()->add_global_attribute("MyScopes", attr_scope);
    logging::register_formatter_factory("MyScopes", &my_scopes_formatter_factory);
    return 0;

    BOOST_LOG_SEV(lg, critical)         << "This is a critical severity record";
    BOOST_LOG_NAMED_SCOPE("random name");
    BOOST_LOG_SEV(lg, error)            << "This is a error severity record";
}
int main(int argc, char* argv[])

    init_logging();
    try_logging();
}
