Subject Re: how to multiple logging output
Date Sun, 11 Mar 2001 22:49:18 GMT
There is also the old fashioned way....
Launch your build in the background with logging to a file
say, Xyz.log, and then do "tail -f Xyz.log" to
watch it on screen. If you are on a brain dead
OS that doesn't know how to do a task in
the background, in another window do "tail -f Xyz.log"

You can have your cake and eat it too...
