Writes to the log file


long WriteLog(BSTR Message);

View list of data type meanings


This writes a message to the log file.

A "newline" is appended to the line if there is not already one there.

You can also use "LogSend" to send a message to the MUD, and log it, in a single function.

The data in the log file may not appear immediately if you view it in another application. To force the data to disk use the FlushLog function.

VBscript example

world.writelog "--- Message for the log file ---"

Jscript example

world.WriteLog("--- Message for the log file ---");

PerlScript example

$world->WriteLog("--- Message for the log file ---");

Python example

world.WriteLog("--- Message for the log file ---")

Lua example

WriteLog("--- Message for the log file ---")

Lua notes

You can supply multiple arguments, which are concatenated together.

eOK: written OK
eLogFileBadWrite: unable to write to the log file
