2.14 Logs

Liquid War 6 uses stdout to output important messages, and stderr to log warnings and errors. It will also use syslog if available.

Additionnally, a verbose log is available in $HOME/.liquidwar6/log.csv on GNU/Linux and POSIX systems, in C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Liquid War 6\log.csv on Microsoft Windows and in /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Liquid War 6/log.csv on Mac OS X.

You can read this using any spreadsheet software capable of reading csv file. It uses the tab (\t) character as a separator. It contains valuable informations including version and most default values for the game, and for each line logged, it says where in the code the log function was called. A must-have for debugging.
