Description

The data processing operation log is a linear sequence of operations applied to a channel or volume data. The log is informative and not meant to capture all information necessary to reply the operations, even though it can be sufficient for this purpose in simple cases.

The log is a linear sequence. This is only an approximation of the actual flow of information in the data processing, which corresponds to an acyclic directed graph (not necessarily connected as data, masks and presentations can have distinct sources). The following rules thus apply to make it meaningful and useful.

Each logging function takes two data identifiers: source and target. The source corresponds to the operation input, the target corresponds to the data whose log is being updated. The target may have already a log only if it is the same as the source (which corresponds to simple data modification such as levelling or grain marking). In all other cases the target must not have a log yet – they represent the creation of new data either from scratch or based on existing data (in the latter case the log of the existing data is replicated to the new one).

Complex multi-data operations are approximated by one of the simple operations. For instance, data arithmetic can be treated as the construction of a new channel from scratch as it is unclear which input data the output channel is actually based on, if any at all. Modifications that use data from other channels, such as masking using another data or tip convolution, should be represented as simple modifications of the primary channel.

Logging functions such as gwy_app_channel_log_add() take settings values corresponding to the function name and store them in the log entry. If the settings are stored under a different name, use the "settings-name" logging option to set the correct name.

Functions

gwy_app_channel_log_add ()

void
gwy_app_channel_log_add (GwyContainer *data,
                         gint previd,
                         gint newid,
                         const gchar *function,
                         ...);

Adds an entry to the log of data processing operations for a channel.

See the introduction for a description of valid previd and newid .

It is possible to pass NULL as function . In this case the log is just copied from source to target without adding any entries. This can be useful to prevent duplicate log entries in modules that modify a data field and then can also create secondary outputs. Note you still need to pass a second NULL argument as the option terminator.

Parameters

data

A data container.

 

previd

Identifier of the previous (source) data channel in the container. Pass -1 for a no-source (or unclear source) operation.

 

newid

Identifier of the new (target) data channel in the container.

 

function

Quailified name of the function applied as shown by the module browser. For instance "proc::facet-level" or "tool::GwyToolCrop".

 

...

Logging options as a NULL-terminated list of pairs name, value.

gwy_app_channel_log_add_proc ()

void
gwy_app_channel_log_add_proc (GwyContainer *data,
                              gint previd,
                              gint newid);

Adds an entry to the log of the current data processing operations for a channel.

This simplified variant of gwy_app_channel_log_add() takes the currently running data processing function name and constructs the qualified function name from that.

Parameters

data

A data container.

 

previd

Identifier of the previous (source) data channel in the container. Pass -1 for a no-source (or unclear source) operation.

 

newid

Identifier of the new (target) data channel in the container.

                                gint id);

Shows a simple log browser for volume data.

Parameters

data

A data container.

 

id

Id of volume data in data to show log for.

                             gint id);

Shows a simple log browser for XYZ data.

If the log browser is already shown for this XYZ data it is just raised and given focus. Otherwise, a new window is created.

Parameters

data

A data container.

 

id

Id of XYZ data in data to show log for.

 

Returns

The log browser (owned by the library). Usually, you can ignore the return value.

Since: 2.45

gwy_log_get_enabled ()

gboolean
gwy_log_get_enabled (void);

Reports whether logging of data processing operations is globally enabled.

Returns

TRUE if logging is enabled, FALSE if it is disabled.

Since: 2.35

gwy_log_set_enabled ()

void
gwy_log_set_enabled (gboolean setting);

Globally enables or disables logging of data processing operations.

By default, logging is enabled. Non-GUI applications that run module functions may wish to disable it. Of course, the log will presist only if the data container is saved into a GWY file.

If logging is disabled logging functions such as gwy_app_channel_log_add() become no-op. It is possible to run the log viewer with gwy_app_log_browser_for_channel() to see log entries created when logging was enabled.

Parameters

setting

TRUE to enable logging, FALSE to disable it.
