[04:03:27] <Colourless> Dominus, what you want is possible, though technically difficult
[10:59:05] <Colourless> currently written code that does just that now... wondering though if i should make it platform portable. currently its windows specific
[10:59:31] <Colourless> there is no reason such funcitonality wont be handy for all operating systems. keep console output and log to the log files too
[11:57:53] <-- Dominus has left IRC (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[11:57:54] --> Dominus1 has joined #pentagram
[13:06:05] <-- Kirben has left IRC ()
[15:24:27] <Dominus1> colourless, sounds great. and yes it sounds as if that were handy for all OS. stderr should really go to a file in all cases since that is more likely to be of use when a crash occurs.
[15:24:57] <Dominus1> even though, judging from exult, stdout proves always more fruitful than stderr :)
[15:30:28] <Colourless> stderr has very little in it usually becaues it only gets actual errors put in it. stdout gets a lot of other more detailed information about what the engine is actually doing
[15:56:59] <Colourless> committed the changes. pstdout.txt and pstderr.txt will now go in pentagrams @HOME path
[15:57:07] <Colourless> for all platforms.

[16:02:52] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[16:05:00] <-- Dominus1 has left IRC (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[16:44:32] <Dominus> thanks Colourless. Works fine here on OS X, the files where one expects them to be. Looking forward to Kirben's upcoming snapshot of it
[16:44:39] <Dominus> thanks for whipping that up so fast
[16:52:39] <Dominus> while you are looking at pentagram sources, can you quickly whip up full Crusader support?
[16:52:42] * Dominus hides
[16:52:44] <Dominus> :)

[23:41:34] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Kirben
[23:52:40] <Kirben> Colourless: There is a problem with your changes to get config file path under Windows, due the addition of mutiple checks. We can no longer be sure of the default location chosen on older Windows versions, for the documentation, or if people ask.
