Hi Jürgen:

Thanks for your reply. I feel somewhat stupid because never thought to look in HOWTOs.
Too brainwashed by macOS world view vs Linux world view.

Hi Peter,

thanks for the proposal. The logging facilities are already
described in the GNU-APL-Designers-Guide.html and
I have added a note concerning -l 37. Also:

apl --help

mentions it, although it could be missed there due to the many
command line options.

SVN 1705.

Best Regards,

Hi Jürgenl:

I was trying out how to startup APL using command line parameters. My first attempt worked:

Last login: Sun Jun  4 13:43:24 on ttys000
Gandalf:~ pteeson$ apl -l 37

But I had to know that LID_startup was  enum 37. 
(UserPreferences::parse_argv_0(..) {.. if (!strcmp(argv[a], "-l") && atoi(argv[a+1]) == LID_startup)
That seems to imply I had already built apl, launched it, and typed ]LOG to find the LID_startup enum.

So I’m wondering if we could maybe add something to the READMEs? 
Perhaps similar to the README-7? Listing the LOG table?
Maybe indicating which can be used on the command line? 

Just a thought…
