View list of data type meanings


This opens a log file of the name "LogFileName", with optional appending to an existing file of the same name. No previous output lines are written (as may happen when you use the ‘open log’ dialog box), nor is a log-file preamble written. If you want to write those things to the script file, you must do them yourself (see WriteLog).

If an empty filename is supplied (that is, "") then the filename specified in the Logging configuration will be used, which lets you use substitutions in the name of the file (eg. the date).

VBscript example
world.openlog "mylog.txt", false
Jscript example
world.openlog("mylog.txt", false);
PerlScript example
$world->openlog("mylog.txt", false);
Python example
world.openlog("mylog.txt", False)
Lua example
OpenLog ("mylog.txt", false)
Lua notes
The Append flag is optional, and defaults to false.
Returns eOK: opened OK
eCouldNotOpenLogFile: unable to open the log file
eLogFileAlreadyOpen: log file was already open
