Description Petr Stodulka 2017-01-10 16:53:33 UTC
Description of problem:
log_* & solution_file functions provided by API don't support use with multiple arguments, which could be useful in case you want to print longer text. For example this construction is useful for printing in bash:
$ echo "long text" \
       "enother text"

and this should work with log_functions too, e.g.
log_info "Some text" \

In addition, function log_info uses "$@" when processing input, however function
_log (which is called by func log_info) doesn't, so these two functions are not uniform in expected input.

This is only for bash, because it is usual use in this language. However Python
expect just one parameter and it make sense, because python has diffent constructions for format of longer texts.

Comment 1 Petr Stodulka 2017-01-17 11:48:45 UTC
After discussion it was decided that this funcionality will not be accepted
as it make differences between API for Python and Bash. So I am closing this rfe.
