Log Files

The query log file

The query log is directed to the binary file 'queryLog.bin' in the application's current directory (during the call to the wrapper's entry point).
If a file already exists with this name then this file will be replaced.

Logging large buffers

Some methods in the API take potentially large buffers, and to avoid the main log file becoming unworkably large these buffers are stored in separate files, with a file index stored in the main log.

Byte arrays (such as passed in to iPathEngine::loadMeshFromBuffer()) have special case handling in the query logging, and where the size of a byte array is greater than certain threshold (currently 16 bytes), the contents of the byte array is stored out to a file in the current working directory, with file names starting from 'loggedByteArray1.bin'.
