Causes Tera Term to start logging.

logopen <filename> <binary flag> <append flag> [<plain text flag> [<timestamp flag> [<hide dialog flag> [<include screen buffer flag> [<timestamp type]]]]]


Received characters are written to the file <filename>.
When the file does not include \ character, the file is saved at the TeraTerm current directory. If a user want to change the directory, use the changedir macro command.

If <binary flag> is zero, received new-line characters are converted (CR -> CR/CRLF) and escape sequences are stripped out.
If <binary flag> is non-zero, received characters are written without any modifications.

If <append flag> is non-zero and the file <filename> already exists, received characters are appended to it.
If <append flag> is zero and the file <filename> already exists, the file is overwritten.

If <plain text flag> is not 0, ASCII non-printable characters are not written into log.
If <timestamp flag> is not 0, a timestamp is added on top of log.
If <binary flag> is non-zero, <plain text flag> and <timestamp flag> is ignored. The binary log file is available for Replay Log. (version 4.61 or later)

If <hide dialog flag> is not 0, "Log" dialog box is not displayed.

If <include screen buffer flag> is not 0, all current screen buffer is written into a log file in first. (version 4.80 or later)

<timestamp type> specifies timestamp type, and can be one of the following: (version 4.97 or later)

value Meaning
0 Local Time
2 Elapsed Time (Logging)
3 Elapsed Time (Connection)

If a log file is successfully opened, the system variable "result" is set to 0. Otherwise, the "result" is set to 1. (version 4.62 or later)
