#include <db_cxx.h>

void Db::set_msgfile(FILE *msgfile); 

There are interfaces in the Berkeley DB library which either directly output informational messages or statistical information, or configure the library to output such messages when performing other operations, for example, DbEnv::set_verbose() and DbEnv::stat_print().

The DbEnv::set_msgfile() and Db::set_msgfile() methods are used to display these messages for the application. In this case the message will include a trailing <newline> character.

Setting msgfile to NULL unconfigures the interface.

Alternatively, you can use the DbEnv::set_message_stream() and Db::set_message_stream() methods to display the messages via an output stream, or the DbEnv::set_msgcall() or Db::set_msgcall() methods to capture the additional error information in a way that does not use C library FILE *'s. You should not mix these approaches.

For Db handles opened inside of Berkeley DB environments, calling the Db::set_msgfile() method affects the entire environment and is equivalent to calling the DbEnv::set_msgfile() method.

The Db::set_msgfile() method configures operations performed using the specified Db handle, not all operations performed on the underlying database.

The Db::set_msgfile() method may be called at any time during the life of the application.



The msgfile parameter is a C library FILE * to be used for displaying messages.
