Auto-Trace Section-Name in Script Log

Hi,

we all know that the reload logs are very often not very helpfull, when you try to fix a reload error (e.g. applymap error not telling you which applymap failed).

To improve this a little bit I would like to ask for an automatic trace whenever a new section is processed.  The reload log could look like this:

=====MAIN=====

script log

reload * resident

etc etc

===== Section 2 ====

left Join etc etc

==== Section 3 ====

etc

 

Not sure if others aggree with this idea, but for me personally this would improve QOL quite much.

I like it - being able to search by section name would be useful I think.

If I'd have thought of it, I'd probably have added it to my idea about general improvements to logging!

@AlexOmetis - I know your post. I commented it May last year. - It is very sad that not even the simple improvents (e.g. applymap error) were even put on the roadmap yet. 😕

Nice idea but pending the  implementation you could just add

TRACE -----------------------

TRACE <name of section>

TRACE -----------------------

 

to the beginning of each section 🙂

@philipdoyne  Thx for the tip. But doing it manually I prefer it that way:

let vTrace = 'Trace ======$1======';

$(vTrace(Section1));

$(vTrace(Section2));

$(vTrace(etc));

 

Or if you need it to trace a complex script, I use a Sub instead, because then I am able to not only trace the title but although measure the runtime of each section and let the scrept tell me something like this:

=== Last Section took 3:45 minutes to reload. ===

=== Starting reload of Section DemoXYZ. ===

Very good Oliver - I quite agree - I like the subroutine idea best 🙂

.... although it would of course be better if it did this automatically - is not very contentious!
