Locked Re: #logging Possible Enhancement for the ALL.TXT file #logging


Every couple months I go to the ALL.txt file and rename it date_ALL.txt.
Then I move it to an archive_ALL folder. A new ALL.txt file is
automatically generated.

The hardest part about this procedure is remembering to do it.
I'm sure a script/bat file triggered by CRON/win_task-scheduler, can do
this,but I never got around to it.

so in other words, make it do what jtdx does??? serching old all texts
become very difficult

I find it easier to just edit with notepad, keep current month or 2 in
all.txt, but cut and paste older info to a renamed all.tx, as in "all
01-01-22 - 06-01-22.txt"

if the lost log entry has a date, I can find which txt file to search

I would recommend an option to duplicate the behavior of one of the
derivative programs ... start a new ALL.TXT (ALL_YYYY-MM-DD.txt) file
at 00:00z on the first of each month.

Not only does that keep the size of each file generally manageable with
Notebook (no special software), it makes finding a particular callsign
or time period much easier.

Thank you all for the responses to my enhancement post.
After reading some of the responses, I can refine my request to these 3
options in regards to the ALL.TXT file.

1) Write all activity as it currently does today. Manually manage the
file for historical purposes.
2) Write only my calls 'send' and 'receive' activity to the file. File
size would never be an issue based on your own call activity.
3) Don't create or write to this file at all.
