After adding ofLogToFile(), app crashing on exit

Since adding ofLogToFile(“log.txt”) to my app it crashes on exit (Cmd+Q)

Is there some clean up I’m meant to do - to release the file or something?

I’m on OS X 10.7.4, XCode 4.3.3, 0071 release

Thanks in advance!

Very delayed reply to this thread but I saw a similar issue. Not sure what’s causing the issue yet but I was able to fix the crash simply by adding the following:

In testApp.h

void exit();  

In testApp.cpp

void testApp::exit() {  

By switching the log back to console right before exit it seems to at least quit correctly.

Thanks for this, just solved my problem, this should at least be in the documentation.

I also notice that with OF0.11.1 for one specific project.
I always use ofLogToFile for all my projects and I never notice that. This time it’s a big project with addons, many files, … and I can’t guess where it come from.
