Subject Re: [FALCON] Logging in an extension program

Gordon et al,

I've pretty much figured out that using COMPC as a starting  
point/inspiration is the way to go.

I also spent half the day studying the Configuration class and it's  
siblings. This has shed a lot of light about how to implement  
something that will use quite a few compiler arguments.

I've also managed to create my own configuration with flags.

The problems problem, :) also has been solved since the MXMLC class  
tracks these. Basically there is a lot of setup to do things using all  
the functionality available, that is why subclassing MXMLC is a good  
idea from the standpoint of a platform ready to go.
