Object-oriented programming is the current cure-all — although it has been around for much more then ten years. At the core, there is little more to it then finally applying the good programming principles which we have been taught for more then twenty years. […] it turns out that you can do just as well with plain ANSI-C.

It seems extraordinary that just about every C project ends up developing it’s own logging system.
While there are environments like embedded systems or operating system kernels that may justify customized logging technology (and there are open source projects aimed at those areas) there seems to be no a priori reason why most user level application and server software written in C cannot share a logging library.
