Now for an opinion that you might find unproductive.

If you need, in my humble opinion, need more than a few hundreds lines of output in you run debug window, I recommend you seriously step back and asses you debugging style.

If you are debugging a server product, running as a damon etc. that is why people run servers in debug mode watching the logs of a server.

50,000 lines seems very, very generous. Could you justify why you would need more than that. I have more than 30 years software development experience an I am trying to discover what could you possibly need more than the very generous 50,000 lines.


I, the unwilling, was lead by the unqualified, to do the unbelievable for so long with so little, that I attempted the impossible with nothing
