== fgfs.log ==
The startup log file contains nearly the same information that is output on the console.
The goal of adding the log file was to capture some debugging output in a way that is robust for users, i.e just works, and works ‘historically’, i.e is useful when a problem occurs since it was already enabled. The level is fixed at INFO because a lower level wouldn’t contain enough detail for debugging, but a higher level (SG_DEBUG) the files would be huge for a long FG session. This is my decision of course and it can be changed if people are happy with 100MB+ text files in their FG_HOME. Or we add a new option to set the file-log-level, but again the intention was for this feature to be as automatic as possible.<ref>{{cite web
