QuestionUsing print spooler to update shared log file Pin
Roy Barkas7-May-09 11:15

I need to write debug outputs and general log file data to a log file.
There may be several instances of the application that needs to write this data running at the same time, processing different data sets. I need to collect the outputs into a single shared log file that will be appended to.

I thought that the simple way would be for each instance to create a logfile with a unique name, then when the application is done, it would spool the content of it's own unique log file to a system printer that used the FILE driver. In this way I thought I could avoid writing a spooler of my own.

The problem that I haven't yet overcome is that the print to file driver pops up a window asking for the output file name each time it is called. I'm not sure whether the shared/spooled write access I seek will work even after I get past this problem.

There may be a much simpler way to do what I am trying to do, but I haven't found it yet.
For an ancient assembler/Fortran coder like me learning how to use the extreme richness of VB 2008 reminds me of an old text based dungeons and dragons game.
