BasicFormatter produces output like this:

  WARN loggername: I dropped my Wookie!

Or like this if trace is on:

  WARN loggername(file.rb at 12): Hot potato!

Also, it will pretty-print any Exception it gets and inspect everything else.

Hash arguments include:

depth:How many lines of the stacktrace to display.

Public Instance Methods

(Not documented)

# File log4r/formatter/formatter.rb, line 55
    def format(event)
      buff = sprintf(@@basicformat, MaxLevelLength, LNAMES[event.level],
      buff << (event.tracer.nil? ? "" : "(#{event.tracer[0]})") + ": "
      buff << format_object( + "\n"

Formats data according to its class:

String:Prints it out as normal.
Exception:Produces output similar to command-line exceptions.
Object:Prints the type of object, then the output of inspect. An example — Array: [1, 2, 3]
# File log4r/formatter/formatter.rb, line 70
    def format_object(obj)
      if obj.kind_of? Exception
        return "Caught #{obj.class}: #{obj.message}\n\t" +\
      elsif obj.kind_of? String
        return obj
      else # inspect the object
        return "#{obj.class}: #{obj.inspect}"
