Arguments

txt

Description to add to the log file. The words STARTED and COMPLETED are prepended to the message upon initialization and completion of the section, respectively.

fname

Name of the log file and/or console. Note that at most one file name can be specified. The function logger.start normalizes the given name, that is, it converts it to an absolute name. If this parameter is NA, logger messages are printed to the console. If it is a two-element vector containing one file name and NA, the logger is (re)initialized to print messages both to the given file name and the console. A value of NULL (default) indicates the logger should continue using the previously specified file.

Value

None (invisible NULL).

Details

logger.start initializes the logger and/or starts a new section. logger.completed completes the last (innermost) open section in the log. logger.close deinitializes the logger. Note that after reinitialization or deinitialization, the information about the current output file, as well as any open sections, is deleted.
