[nos-bbs] Changing JNOS log file name

Is the date/time format the same as used in spool/mail.log?  

It would make comparing both files easier if the formats are the same.


Would you be willing to write up this combination (change to single log file
name, plus change of timestamp format) in whatever format Maiko could use to
add a #define option in config.h?


I guess current behavior to be added to config.h would be something like

#define DAILY_JNOS_LOG   -or-



I'll bet a bunch of folks would flip that switch if it were available.

Your welcome.

The log only contains a time stamp what is a little bit nasty because you
have no point of reference
anymore in the log name or file creation date so I fixed that by adding Day,
Month and Year to the time stamp.

Look in main.c for the line..

fprintf (fp, "%9.9s", cp + 11);  

This is around line 1112  in function nos_log(), 5 lines below the earlier
modification and I modified it to...

fprintf (fp, "%.24s", cp);                /* 30Sep2014, Boudewijn VE3TOK,
added Day Month Year to time stamp */

Recompile and a full date stamp will be added to each entry in nos.log

Thanks, Bob.
That seems to have done the trick.

Yes that is possible, I changed the name to "nos.log"

Open main.c of the source with an editor and look for the line....

sprintf (ML, "%s/%2.2s%3.3s%2.2s", LogsDir, cp + 8, cp + 4, cp + 22);

- Around line 1101 in function nos_log() -

I changed it to:

  /*    sprintf (ML, "%s/%2.2s%3.3s%2.2s", LogsDir, cp + 8, cp + 4, cp +
22);  */

      sprintf(ML, "%s/%s", LogsDir, "nos.log");       /* 28Sep2014,
Boudewijn(Bob) VE3TOK, changed log name to nos.log */
