5.4 Logging Parameters

A basic logging framework is provided in BESTPRED to assist in isolating and identifying problems. Messages are written to a plain text file in the directory in which the program is run. The logfile can grow very large very quick;y if a large number of records are being processed, so logging is turned off by default. It can be ebabled by setting 'LOGon = 1' in the parameter file. Note that you should enable logging and attach your logfile when reporting errors.
