Woodcutter is a free and simple logging framework. It's installed by simply including the file "woodcutter.h" everywhere you need to log (or obviously in one header file that's included in every file you need to log).
It can be configured (in any function, but usually main()) like this
to set the minimal logging level. Allowed parameters are INFO, WARN, FATAL and ERROR.
If you want pretty colors (in ANSI color code supporting terminals):
Then use the functions
For info messages:
For warning messages:
LOGW("Be warned, flux capacitor getting hot");
For error messages:
LOGE("An error occured: something serious!");
For fatal error messages:
LOGF("The flux capacitor overloaded and now everything stops.");
Only the logging messages with a high enough warning level, as defined by minloglevel are displayed. INFO < WARN < ERROR < FATAL.
After printing a FATAL message, the program will quit.
For a working version: see main.cpp (compile with
g++ main.cpp and everything should be OK).
