When running a tool in debug mode the header is not written into the console. In principle the debug mode should provide similar output as the log file.


No recurrence.

This is actually a GammaLib issue, since debug mode was not switched on at the GApplication level before writing the header.

I added the debugging functionality to GApplication::logFileOpen:

    // Open logger only if filename is non-empty
    if (!log_filename().empty()) {

        // Initialise the application logger
        log.open(log_filename(), clobber);

        // If we're in debug mode then all output is also dumped on the
        // screen
        if (logDebug()) {

        // Write header into log file

    } // endif: file name was not empty
