Hi I have a game I am working on, it has a logger class. This class stores a string stream, and then dumps it to a text file when the application closes.
What I want to be able to do is have it open in some kind of text editor and have it reload automatically whenever the program changes the log file.
However if I try to use visual studio it always prompts that the file has changed would you like to reload it, this gets very annoying after hours of programming. I tried notepad, but it doesn't even know when the file changes and so you have to close it and reopen it again every time. I tried word pad, it grabs control of the file and doesn't let my application modify it. Libre office does the same thing.
So what text editor can I use that will not block the file from changing but also automatically update when the file contents change?
