The application I'm currently working on would benefit from some debug log output. I noticed that OSLib contains references to syslog SWIs but I think these are not really SWIs as I don't see anything about it in the PRMs...

Does anyone have any recommendations about this? What is the best way to handle log files in RISC OS applications?

There is a syslog module here. RISC OS Select is the only OS version to have syslog functionality built-in, which is why it isn't part of the PRMs (unless you look at ROL's docs, I guess). I haven't used it much myself, so I'm not sure how flexible it is (about all that I know is that the default behaviour is to log to a program-specific log file in !Scrap).

It's also worth investigating Reporter, which in addition to managing the log output of your program also allows you to log many system events so you can see what's going on behind the scenes.

Thanks Jeffrey, I'll take a look at those links.
