Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ CConsoleRedirector()

mrpt::system::CConsoleRedirector::CConsoleRedirector ( const std::string out_file,
bool  also_to_console = true,
bool  also_cerr = true,
bool  append_file = false,
int  bufferSize = 1000 


out_fileThe file to create / append
also_to_consoleWhether to redirect data to file and also dump data to the console as usual.
append_fileIf set to false the file will be truncated on open
bufferSizeIt's recommended to buffer the data instead of writing characters one by one.
also_cerrWhether to redirect the output to std::cerr in addition to std::cout.
std::exceptionIf the file cannot be opened.
