The Toothpick Logo


A simple configurable Logging mechanism for Smalltalk

Toothpick is a simple tool for logging things of interest in Smalltalk. It's easy to use, very lightweight, and highly configurable. The basic design idea behind Toothpick was to separate something to be logged from the three things one needs to think about when logging it:

  • Whether to log it
  • Where to log it
  • How to log it

Each of these three aspects is represented by a separate class hierarchy, and you can mix and match aspects to provide you with the optimal logging solution for your needs.
