Modifying cout to display custom text at start

P: 4
Hello,

I'm working on, to write the debug statements to logfile or console depends on working environment.

What I have did:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.  
  2.     streambuf *psbuf;
  3.     ofstream logFile;
  4.     logFile.open(LOGFILE);
  5.  
  6.     psbuf = logFile.rdbuf();
  7.     cout.rdbuf(psbuf);
  8.  
this cause cout to redirect the output to log and it's working fine.

The situation is, I like to include the date/time, in front of each message.

e.g cout<<"Hello"<<endl;

will log -

[10/10/2010 12:24:32] Hello

Hope I'm clear in my question.

Many Thanks
