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>

    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();
