The threading API of APR looks quite simple (and close to pthread), it 
shouldn't be a problem to support it the day it's needed.

Another solution is to typedef the main types we use in threading, 
depending on PTHREAD (not HAVE_PTHREAD), and WIN32. This will require

How to log milliseconds?

Hello log4cxx-user,

I have a question:
How do I log milliseconds in Patternlaypout?
I tried with the %Q option as statet in the documentationlike this:
%d{%H:%M:%S-%Q}
but output schows a % sign after the seconds where the
milliseconds should be...
Anyone can help? Is it somehow possible to log microseconds?

Compiler Warnings

When using the log4cxx libraries in a VisualStudio project, I am getting
3 warnings in tchar.h:

include\log4cxx\helpers\tchar.h(263) : warning C4244: 'argument' :
conversion from '__w64 int' to 'std::streamoff', possible loss of data

include\log4cxx\helpers\tchar.h(264) : warning C4244: 'argument' :
conversion from '__w64 int' to 'int', possible loss of data

include\log4cxx\helpers\tchar.h(269) : warning C4244: 'argument' :
conversion from '__w64 int' to 'std::streamoff', possible loss of data

Are these warnings something I should be concerned about?  Am I
including things in the wrong order or is there some other way to get
rid of these warnings?

Thanks,

Sean Rohead

In general it means there's a chance you could truncate a value.  In
practice you'd have to know if the types might actually hold 64 bit
values to know if you need to worry.

Visual Studio .NET has such warnings enabled by default.  If you don't
want to see them, go to Project / Properties and turn off "Detect 64-bit
Portability Issues" in the C/C++ General settings.

The mechanism used for critical sections is an implementation detail 
that is ideally invisible to the client application.  I think it is 
much more preferable to hide that implementation detail than to make 
the build for the client application guess the value used to build the 
library.

Re: How to log milliseconds?

Hi,

Yes it should work without any problem.
On which platform do you use log4cxx ?

Ok then let's go for pimpl. I'll keep you informed.

v8plus Solaris instructions, asm code and atomic add

Hi,
We have experienced crashes on Solaris which we think are partly to do with the -xarch=v8plus flag.
However, removing it is impossible (or is there a way?!) without disabling the assembly code
inside "thread.cpp". I have some questions on that:

1. Why was asm code used in the first place for atomic add instead of the solaris' InterlockedIncrement?
   I suspect this was due to some bug in some version or other of SunOS implementation with conjunction of the v8
flags, but I'd
   be most grateful to hear more details, or whether there is a specific CC/Solaris patch
   that handles that.
2. Disabling the assembly code allows us to compile without the v8plus optimization flag (with the
downside of
not being thread-safe), and log4cxx seems to work fine with DOMConfigurator, but, alas, crashes on
PropertyConfigurator, this time
on the actual Solaris underlying __AtomicAdd32, when referencing stl strings (from within std::basic_string)

Any ideas on how to proceed will be welcome, as I am running out of any very quickly...

Many thanks,
Barak

PS - For anyone with morbid interest, below are two stack traces, both from PropertyConfigurator crash,
the first one
when using the -xarch=v8plus flag, and the second when disabling the sparc_atomic_add_32 method of
thread.cpp file
and building without that flag:

Building under Windows with command-line

Hi,

Is there a simple way to build the log4cxx for Windows .NET 2003 using its (free) command-line compiler?
It may take some time until I can get an IDE license, so if there is, it would be most helpful.
(also, if (instead) someone can send me a binary dll version for Windows XP, built under .NET 2003 that could
also be a temporary solution for me)

Cheers,
Barak

Re: Building under Windows with command-line

I have an Ant build script that will build log4cxx that I'll check with 
the Visual C++ 2003 toolkit and commit.  I've used to to build with 
Borland C++ builder and to generate CBuilderX and Xcode project files.
