    /* user of version 1.2.{0,1}, in C project on Linux */ Log4c is fine for small project that can afford having configuration files. For larger project with a lot of processes it quickly becomes a pain to maintain thoses configuration files. And on-the-fly configuration was a pain with log4c I was disappointed by: * the use of mutexes in the logging handler, causing deadlocks when calling a logging function in a signal handler. * the strange behavior when overriding a category's logger (message dupplication). * the end-of-support and the no-answer received for support requests. * the removal of log4c from some big and official Linux distribution (i.e. Fedora Core 17) I found really easier to use the Gnome Library (GLib2.0) internal logging support. Now is my life easier, happier.
