Detailed Description

Log4c rolling file appender interface.

The rolling file appender implements a logging mechanism of a list of files up to a maximum number.

The files are written by default to the current directory with logging names folowing the pattern log.1, log.2 etc. These parameters may be changed using the appropriate setter functions.

If the appender fails to open logfiles for writing then the messages are logged to stderr--it will continue to try to open the zero-th file for writing at rollover events so if it succeeds at some point to open that file the messages will start to appear therein and will no longer be sent to stderr.

Switching from logging from one file to the next is referred to as a 'rollover event'.

The policy that determines when a rollover event should happen is called a 'rolling policy'.

A mechanism is provided to allow different rolling policies to be defined.

Log4c ships with (and defaults to) the classic size-window rollover policy: this triggers rollover when files reach a maximum size. The first file in the list is always the current file; when a rollover event occurs files are shifted up by one position in the list--if the number of files in the list has already reached the max then the oldest file is rotated out of the window.

See the documentation in the rollingpolicy_type_sizewin.h file for more details on the size-win rollover policy.

Function Documentation

Returns:

zero if successful, non-zero otherwise.

Variable Documentation

__LOG4C_BEGIN_DECLS const log4c_appender_type_t log4c_appender_type_rollingfile

rollingfile appender type definition.

This should be used as a parameter to the log4c_appender_set_type() routine to set the type of the appender.
