Hi,

I have seen that it is possible to redirect the console output to a file (Run Configuration > Common > Standard Input and Output).

What I like to have is a redirect to a file named FILENAME_<timestamp>.log. So the question is, how can I add the current timestamp to the filename?

Thanks & Best regards,
Martin

Currently there is no way to do this, although I could envision using a variable to be able to insert such a value.

I opened bug https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=384844 for this enhancement. Once fixed you would be able to add a file name like FILENAME_${current_time}.log and debug you insert the value for you automatically.

Thanks for the great idea Martin!

Michael,

to my shame I have to admit that I forgot this topic in the meanwhile.

I have implemented a dynamic variable for the timestamp already and use this every day. I will add the source code to the 'bug', you have created.

Thank You Martin,

I have eclipse Mar 2 package, which has variable name called current_date and the format of this is YYYYMMDD_HHMI. This is very cool feature for debugging without worrying about manual rotation of log files.

Appreciate your help.
