Using the Hyperlog

1 minute read

The hyperlog presents an augmented version of the familiar build output log, leveraging the extra information provided by Electric Make to enable highlighting errors and warnings, folding of submake output, and line numbering.

To access the hyperlog, click the Go to log button on any Job Details dialog. When the hyperlog opens, you go directly to the corresponding job’s location. You can also click Tools > View build log… to access the hyperlog.

Double-clicking any line of log output displays the corresponding job’s details dialog.

The hyperlog is not available when monitoring a live build because the log file doesn’t exist.
