[name | level | timestamp:] body

struct TMsg
    // fields

    mrpt::Clock::time_point timestamp;
    VerbosityLevel level;
    std::string name;
    std::string body;

    // construction

    TMsg(const mrpt::system::VerbosityLevel level, std::string_view msg, const COutputLogger& logger);

    // methods

    std::string getAsString() const;
    void getAsString(std::string* contents) const;
    void writeToStream(std::ostream& out) const;
    void dumpToConsole() const;


mrpt::Clock::time_point timestamp
