Since backups are such an important thing, you may log all of your activities when using one of the RAB programs. Ok, in this version there is only one such program. All log messages will be written to the file /var/log/rab. This is the default logfile, and may be changed. There is a level associated to each log message. These levels are as follows.


This level is used for error messages and user specified log messages.


This level is used for 'important' messages, which directories are saved and stuff like this.


Informational messages.


All the gory details. This is intended for debugging purposes.

It is configurable which messages actually appear in the logfile. You may even disable logging completely.
