|Summary||0000439: Move Console To Internal Window|
|Description||I don't know how feasible/possible this is in C with the MTX arch, but it would be nice if the messages that you currently write to the console could be seen in a window by users who launch from a menu or on windows platforms. In Java it's straight forward to tee the stream to the console, to a console window or both. I believe that C++ has a similar mechanism. If this isn't possible, close won't fix, if it's merely difficult, just assign it to some future version for target :-)|

Depending on what is emitting the message, the info is probably ALREADY being logged to ~/MTXlog.txt. It depends if the code use dbg_func(), or just printf(). Printf was mainly for code in development so the output is "right there", vs having to tee off a logfile to see the info.
When megatunix is compiled with --enable-debug, it also displays any log info set with the CRITICAL enum to the controlling TTY as well as the logfile.
Things could be better, I believe i already have an issue open for improving how the debugging stuff works in mtx, as of now it is very inefficient, and results in lots of memory allocations/deallocations), even if stuff isn't actually logged to files.
|OK, that's good to hear. So all that really needs to happen if you should desire a window with console style info in it, is to add backing to the dbg_func() function and grep out any printfs that are floating around. Cool :-)|
