Hello! I have a logging class to log all errors/warnings and other messages in my project. The log function goes like so :
[source lang=cpp]
// AddLogEntry
// Adds a log entry into the html file
bool BGL::CBGLLogger::AddLogEntry(LOGTYPE logtype,
char * const codelocation, char * const entry, bool logged, bool     messageboxed, bool printfed, ...)
	if((int)logtype < m_bFileLoggingMinLevel) return true;

    va_list args;
    va_start(args, printfed);
    char * message = new char[_vscprintf(entry,args)];

... and then "message" is outputted into a file. a sample call:
"BGL::CBGL3dsLoader::Load()","My text hey, look it's myvariable : %i", true, false, true, myvariable);
However my code uses ellipses and old output functions, I which to correct that. How can I arrange my code so it doesn't use ellipses but still can output different types of variables along with the text (float, int, double) ? Anyone has a proposition? Or another way to handle the problem?
