Defining categories for the error logger
#1 Updated by Rob Kutschke over 8 years ago
At the last Friday meeting I showed some of my proposed example code for an art example package. The first module uses std::cerr to print the event number. Chris suggested changing it to use LogInfo. My first thought was that this makes sense. But it does not really make sense to introduce the message logger system without describing what categories mean and how to use them. I am a little worried that this is getting too overwhelming for one of the intended audiences. Any suggestions here? Maybe a category of "Heartbeat"? All of the examples that I have generate only heartbeat messages. Does the current message logger have an interface that takes a category type so that we can restrict the categories used by people?
