Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

This article is a stub. You can help the wiki by expanding it.


Note  In its current form, this section/article is largely based on quotes collected from various related discussions/channels (devel list, forum etc) using the Instant-Cquotes script. Wiki users and other contributors are encouraged to help rewrite/edit contents accordingly to help get rid of unnecessary quoting (i.e. while the wiki is not intended to be a collection of quotes, quotes are sometimes the best/easiest way to bootstrap new articles, while also providing a good way to link back to related discussions in the archives).

While rewriting usually only entails changing first person speech to 3rd person. However, please try to retain references/links to the original discussion whenever possible.

Cquote1.png What's changed is the addition of that log file :)


(Well, and the capability to show portions of the log in the GUI)

I was unaware JSBSim output wasn't being captured there, but it makes sense since I'm only capturing SimGear log output, which JSBSim doesn't use. There is a mechanism to send other log streams to the same backend, including partial code to do this with OSG messages.
