You may find that your symlink will only work for one day. The log file is date coded and the filename changes each day.

Hi Roberto,

Excellent description, should be the way to go!

I was lazy and just put a symlink to the log file. I just started
fldigi, turned logging on and looked for the name of the log. Then
created a symlink to it: "ln -s fldigi20090415.log fldigi.log"
It works until I restart the logging, then the symlink will have to be
redone so its not at all as good as your solution (but works too).

Hi to all.
I have installed on IS0GRB-3 the new fldigi 3.11, but as in the
previous version 3.10, the log format is in different format from
others versions and this create some problems on pskmail monitor with
gmfsk.php Per (smorwo) script
How suggested on february in this list from Fred WB5CON and tested by
me in 3.10 and 3.11 the solution is:

Downloaded the fldigi version .tar.gz. Decompress it in your preferred directory with: tar xvzf fldigi-3.11.tar.gz go in the directory: fldigi-3.11/src edit the file: main.cxx
and remove the row 255:


between these rows:
lfname.append(tdy.szDate(2));     <-----remove it

after, come back in the main directory fldigi-3.11 and compile it: ./configure --enable-threads make make intall
Very important!
The log in this version will be named "gMFSK.log" and will be in the
main directory.
In the previous version was named "fldigi.log" in the .fldigi
So, change the path in the gmfsk.php script to have again the log
traffic in pskmail monitor.
In my server the new path is "/home/is0grb/gMFSK.log".

Now the new fldigi 3.11 will write the fldigi.log in the previous
standard. 73 Roberto IS0GRB
