PowTTY logging.

Post by Imago » Mon Apr 20, 2009 9:54 pm

I've noticed, and I'm sure everyone else who uses powtty, that when you log in powtty it seems to hold commands you haven't hit enter (just typed at the prompt) in the log.

Example:

Code: Select all

!f CRW Mana:Hot>sa      
You hear the deep sound of a horn reverberating throughout the land.

!f CRW Mana:Hot>sa T      
You hear the deep sound of a horn reverberating throughout the land.

!f CRW Mana:Hot>sa Two              
You hear the deep sound of a horn reverberating throughout the land.

!f CRW Mana:Hot>sa Two tim                         
You hear the deep sound of a horn reverberating throughout the land.

!f CRW Mana:Hot>sa Two times.                           
You hear the deep sound of a horn reverberating throughout the land.

!f CRW Mana:Hot>
Ok.
Anyone more familiar with powtty know if there is any way to negate this? It can be a HUGE pain when editing spammy logs.

I am all too familiar with the very poor logging of PowTTY, but if what you showed was the worst you get you are lucky :)

This is an example of how things can look for me, and even this is a somewhat clean/nice example:

Code: Select all

!# cW Mana:Burning>prac cur        prac    west
Alas, you cannot go that way...
prac    
prac    !# cW Mana:Burning>prac    north
west
west
Grand Hallway
prac    Exits: (north), east, south, west.
prac    
prac    !# cW Mana:Burning>prac    Grand Hallway
prac    Exits: north, east, south, west.
And no, I have no idea how to fix this (and I doubt that it is possible with anything less than some change to the source code for PowTTY). I guess it could be possible to do some work-around by having some other application "snoop" on PowTTY and copy all its output... but I don't know any such application and I guess that gets more complicated than you would like it to be.

I use this script to automatically log my last session:

Code: Select all

nschimme@cork:/usr/local/bin$ cat mume 
#!/bin/bash
cd /mnt/games/powwow
powwow config.pow | tee -i logs/_last_session.txt

Yeah, but that's for a console-based application like powwow and doesn't work in powtty.
