Hi all,

I'm using eclipse, and I have a huge amount of log info on the eclipse console, but it just flashed away. I'm not able to track the previous log. So is there something like eclipse console log file which records all these log information? or where and how can I do the settings?

You can extend the buffer in the properties.
Window > Preferences, then type 'console' into the filter at the top. I have mine set to 80000 characters

You can also change the launch configuration to use a log file instead of the console, as far as I know.
