How do i get the chat log plugin to write to a file instead of being in the server shell when you start a server

For OSX

Code: Select all

./bzfs -conf /path/to/file/conf-file.conf >> /path/to/logs/log-name.log
I like to use the ".log" extention so I can watch it in real time in the console.

I'm not sure about Windows, but for Linux, you want:

Code: Select all

bzfs -conf /path/to/conf/file >> logfile
if you want the log to be appended to. In other words, it just keeps adding on to the end of the file.

if you use:

Code: Select all

bzfs -conf /path/to/conf/file > logfile
it will overwrite the file each time the server starts.

Notice that the only difference here is the different number of > characters.

As mistake mentioned, tee is very handy. Basically, it shows everything in your console, AND puts the same info into a file.

I tried this in Windows.
bzfs -conf ck.txt >> cklog.log

I then opened bz, used localhost:5155, played for a few seconds, said a couple of things, then closed bzflag, then the server, and then opened the created log file. It was blank.

I repeated the above process, but removed one of the ">" but still got a blank log file at the end of the experiment.

What do I need to do to get this to run, and is it different in Linux (where I mainly host my servers)?

Thanks much, have a great day.
