You might have noticed the DebugDialog, which is found
from the View/Messages... menuitem. It is a trivial text
window, whose only current purpose is to catch g_log(),
g_message(), g_warning(), etc messages, and
print them in the GUI, instead of writing to the terminal.
While Linux users might not consider this exciting, this
will hopefully be a benefit to Win32 users. On Windows,
that extra DOS console window popping up can be a
So it is turned on by default on Win32, and can be turned
on for other platforms by setting
Of course, if we control our log messages, this dialog will
not see any usage at all. Hopefully, though, this can serve an
alternate purpose as a text output for script engines.
One thing I have noticed, is that Gtkmm and Glibmm might
not be using glib to print their messages. This could be a
problem. The same applies to other libs like Boehm-gc.
I hope that we do not need to redirect stdout/stderr to catch
this information also. If someone knows how to catch
Glibmm messages, please let me know.
