Description

Originally opened as  http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=37934

Currently, to generate a config log, you can do:

perl Configure.pl --test --verbose > config.log 2>&1

I would recommend eliminating the --verbose option here, and have the normal config output (probing...yes) go to the screen, but by default have all the verbose output go to the log file. No change in the output that you'd get from above is necessary - the purpose of the log file would be for a parrot dev to dig through when someone had a build failure.

Coke,

Am I correct in thinking that you want 'verbose' output to be turned on by default, and then to be automatically printed to a log file?

If so, then should we continue to offer the --verbose-step option?

FWIW, the various configuration steps differ considerably in the amount of verbose output they can generate. I honestly don't think generating a configure.verbose.log file every time I configure is more helpful than turning on --verbose-step when I really have a problem.

Thank you very much.

If that is the case, then Yuki`N can complete his GCI task but we should not merge this into master -- at least not without further discussion.

Thank you very much.

No interest has been shown in pursuing this in eight months, so I'm closing the ticket as WONTFIX.

Thank you very much.
