Subject logging from views
Date Sat, 24 May 2008 23:31:33 GMT
I've been playing with views, and finding the new Reduce a little confusing.

To get a better idea about what's happening I added a log() function
to the view context, that prints to couchjs stderr (which I redirect
to a log file).

Here's the diff:

I don't think CouchDB cares about view server stderr, so it seems
handy to make it available to view functions for debugging. The only
thing I'm not sure of is - maybe there's a better way
to redirect stderr. Also, I don't know which template variable
corresponds to the log directory, so it's still hardcoded.

I want to polish this and road test it before I add it to JIRA, any
feedback will be appreciated!
