in reply to Re^3: override prototype
in thread override prototype

I do not know why Nimbus::API::nimLog has a prototype. It is one method of the supplier's core Nimbus::API which is compiled C++ for which we have no source

I use Nimbus::API::nimLog because it is part of the product suite I am developing for. The rest of the product uses this logging module, by using it too my log level, log file, log truncation and remote log viewing through the GUI are all the same and controlled by the same settings as the core of the Nimbus product. Scripts I write are rolled out by our support team and any behavioural difference between the bits I wrote and the parts where I rolled in modules from the supplier or the 100% supplier parts would cause mighty confusion.

Using the # Sanity restored sub would mean I would have to re-implement the nimLog method for no discernible profit, I figured it was easier to redefine the sub to do what I want then invoke the original to perform the logging in the standard Nimbus way.

Cheers,
R.

    Not your code, got it.

    What are you talking about? I don't know where you got the idea that I said you should change nimLog. It doesn't require any change to Nimbus::API, the original nimLog or to the one you are writing.
