trace() via stdout instead of log file?

May 22, 2008 4:12 PM

I'm new to Flex. I'm developing on a Mac running 10.5. I discovered the information about mm.cfg, flashlog.txt, and the debug flash player.

I was wondering if it's possible to have trace() send its statements to stdout instead of to a log file. I run the debug player from the command line anyway, so it would be awfully convenient.

On a (possibly) related note, does anybody know what TraceOutputFileEnable in mm.cfg actually does? As far as I can tell, it has no effect on whether or not the logfile is used.

    I clobbered together a solution to my problem. I wrote a shell script that does what I want. It's a simple one-liner and, most importantly, does not require that you create a mm.cfg file.

    Sadly this didn't work for me (on Linux, flashplayerdebugger version  I could really use this functionality.
