Detailed Description

Application logger is a class that implements a logger that can be used by applications to save log file somewhere on the system.

It uses ost::slog to write to syslog and std::clog to write to standard output.

It provides either a stream oriented logger or a old printf style one.

It can be used to log directly on a file or in a spooler like way. Latter uses a ost::ThreadQueue to implement a thread safe access to logger.

It provides a global stream variable called ost::alog.

It provides an AppLog::Ident class that represents a module name for instance that can be used to tag logs. Logging levels are the same defined into ost::Slog: Slog::levelEmergency Slog::levelAlert Slog::levelCritical Slog::levelError Slog::levelWarning Slog::levelNotice Slog::levelInfo Slog::levelDebugfrom.

Example of usage: alog << mod_name << debug << 'Hello world!' << std::endl;
