I broke something

The sheer length of the following message is enough to tell me I must've done something wrong:

1>LogFile.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "class std::basic_string,class std::allocator > __cdecl Util::System::GetTimeAsText(int)" (?GetTimeAsText@System@Util@@YA?AV?$basic_string@_WU?$char_traits@_W@std@@V?$allocator@_W@2@@std@@H@Z) referenced in function "bool __cdecl Util::LogFile::WriteLogEntry(int const &,class std::basic_string,class std::allocator > const &,class std::basic_string,class std::allocator > const &,class std::basic_string,class std::allocator > const &,int const &,class std::basic_string,class std::allocator > const &)" (?WriteLogEntry@LogFile@Util@@YA_NABHABV?$basic_string@_WU?$char_traits@_W@std@@V?$allocator@_W@2@@std@@1101@Z)

Would be nice if they came up with a compiler that actually stripped this crap out of the way. VC8 sort of does, but not well enough [lol]

Yeah, I've heard of those sorts of tools before. I just think it should be a basic part of any IDE.

I mean, really - even the most advanced programmers in the most complex of problems probably doesn't need 90% of the content in that error message. Its just extra "stuff" [smile]
