Hi,

Can anyone help me to enable debug prints to console under Windows(POV 3.8),
please ?
Spent 2.0 hours trying to find solution, command line options +GA +GD gives
nothing, scene has only one string:

#debug "----------------- DEBUG -----------------------------"

Console output in attachment, thanks in advance.

under Linux you need to supply the newline explicitly, ie "string\n".

Thanks, but it's not working for me, unfortunately now I'm tied to Windows by
Matlab license.

should work, no CLI options needed.  (thinking, platform actually should make no
difference)  however, if you use the 'all_file' option, all (console "#debug")
output should be in that (too).

Hi,

Unfortunately, not, I've tried both:

#debug "----------------- DEBUG -----------------------------\n"
#debug "----------------- DEBUG -----------------------------\r"

and don't set 'all_file' option.

curious.  have attached a zip, run (in clean directory) the ini file.  does the
'alltext.out' created not show the '#debug' output? (at least of the first line,
ie '\n' terminated)

You want:


input_file_name = try1.pov
all_file = true
output_file_name = try1
Debug_File=try1.txt

Hi,
looks like parsing problem:
------------------------------------------------------------------
/* try1 */

#version 3.7;

global_settings {assumed_gamma 1}

box {0,1}

// #declare s_ = "a string to display"; // This works
#declare s_ = "----------------- DEBUG -----------------------------"; // This
not

#debug concat(s_, "\n")

#warning "end-of-file"
------------------------------------------------------------------

Yep, just get rid of the other stuff and only use:

input_file_name = try1.pov


Debug_File=try1.txt





I'd also replace the #warning with

#error "No objects in scene"

To stop the render phase
