DitsLogMsg - Write a message to the log file.


Write a message to the log file.


If DRAMA has an enabled logging system (see DitsSetLogSys()) then this routine calls the logLogMsg routine enabled by that logging system. The intention is to allow libraries and user code to log, without having to know what logging system is enable, if any.




(void) = DitsLogMsg (level, prefix, status, message,...)


(">" input, "!" modified, "W" workspace, "<" output)

>levelunsignedA logging level indicator. One of the values below should be set to indicate what is being logged such that the logging system can select what is actually formated and written as desired.

DITS_LOG_STARTUP Message is a startup mesage.
DITS_LOG_INST Message concerns running instrumentation
DITS_LOG_USER1 User defined.
DITS_LOG_USER2 User defined.

>prefixchar *A prefix string for the message, indicating say the library concerned.
