Summary 0000030: Adjustable Debug Information
Description Although the current system to output debug information is quite nice already, it lacks on some on some situations.

E.g. does it output far too many information ;-)
Often you'll only require special information of the parsing process. Information about the language loading process should then be discarded from the user.

A possible solution to reach this would be using a bit set in the debug outputs:
The lowest 3 bits define the error level (undefined, notice, hint, warning, error, fatal, critical, security, ...) while the others define the influence (bit by bit).

So you could easily tell: This message is a notice that refers to parsing, while another message could be a warning related to language loading simply by combining two consts:


If someone is only interested in everything above warning level related to parsing he simply could tell
$geshi->setDbgLevel = DBG_TYPE_WARNING | DBG_PART_PARSING and the debugger could filter appropriatly.
Could be done with DBG_PART-indexed array just the same.

Well it does output a lot of information for sure.

Though this might be a bit slow to fix. I might define those constants and then start using them with new debug lines, and then change old ones when I need them, but I'm not going to trawl through the whole source changing them all.

So this one will be fixed, "slowly".

Well, NP with that. Was suggestion for improving the density of information packed into the debug output. It's just a question of scrolling when you get 2-4 pages with output for the loading of a language file you don't care at the time you concentrate on parsing special syntactic cases.

I'm having a little trouble trying to fix this one. I can't seem to get combinations like:

Show ONLY notices
Show ONLY loading messages
Show ONLY notices THAT ARE ALSO loading messages

I might change the geshi_dbg function to take two parameters instead of one, or work on it a bit more. But this won't make 1.1.1a3. I just need to think about it a bit more.

I'm actually busy removing geshi_dbg lines from certain places (class.geshi.php and other noncritical places), and have now made it so that geshi_dbg doesn't take a flag at all. I don't think I will ever "fix" this bug :)

*g* Which "bug" *g* It's just a way of telling what goes wrong. For real error's you'll never have the right debug lines in-place before ;-)
