I have sample code, I just wanted to build it. I am trying to send log to a file, unfortunately the init function part does not compile, I posted code and compile error as follows, I just wonder what I did wrong here:
Thanks for your help.

Here is the code I am compiling, boost has setup correctly, I can build main part, it running and output message on the console, I just need to redirect to a file, but I could not build init() function:

#include <boost/log/core.hpp>
#include <boost/log/trivial.hpp>
#include <boost/log/expressions.hpp>
#include <boost/log/utility/setup/file.hpp>

using namespace boost::log;

void init()
{
    logging::add_file_log("sample.log");

    logging::core::get()->set_filter
    (
        logging::trivial::severity >= logging::trivial::info
    );
}

int main(int, char*[])
{
	BOOST_LOG_TRIVIAL(trace) << "A trace severity message";
	BOOST_LOG_TRIVIAL(debug) << "A debug severity message";
	BOOST_LOG_TRIVIAL(info) << "An informational severity message";
	BOOST_LOG_TRIVIAL(warning) << "A warning severity message";
	BOOST_LOG_TRIVIAL(error) << "An error severity message";
	BOOST_LOG_TRIVIAL(fatal) << "A fatal severity message";

	return 0;
}

Open in new window

Here is the compile output:

I am using boost 1.59.0 at this time, I have compiled the code for both 64 bit.
Does anyone knows what is wrong?

Hi Evan Li,

well, the first error does clearly show what the problem is:

testboostLogging.cpp(13): error C2653: 'logging' : is not a class or namespace name

Most (if not all) Boost functions/classes you use are declared in namespace boost::log, there's no namespace boost::log::logging, so to solve the compile errors it should be enout to remove all occurances of logging:: from your code.

Hope that helps,

Thank you very much,

I added following line:
namespace logging = boost::log;

This makes it to be build.
