I recently added this question on SO, which contained a large chunk of log file output. I found it most readable when I formatted as code:
LOG: User = eggtech024-PC\eggtech024 LOG: DisplayName = Spring.Core, Version=126.96.36.199711, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=65e474d141e25e07 (Fully-specified) ... snip ... WRN: Comparing the assembly name resulted in the mismatch: Minor Version ERR: Failed to complete setup of assembly (hr = 0x80131040). Probing terminated.
Downside of this approach is that it smart-formats code constructs it recognizes, which isn't really useful.
What is the preferred way of formatting log-file like output?
