DescriptionA rewrite of the famous dumplog patch for NetHack 3.6.0
 This is a complete rewrite of the famous dumplog patch for 3.6.0

This version have a cleaner code, and outputs identical logs regardless of options. It's also not tied to the tty interface and should work on X11/win32/whatever.
Due to the fact that the tty code is not reused, map output is not supported as of version 1.0.0.

- Apply the patch. (with -p0)
- Make sure DUMPLOG is defined, either in include/config.h or via a hint file.

You can use defines to customize this patch.

DUMPLOG_FILE - The path were logs are going to be saved (default: "/tmp/nethack.%n.%d.log")
DUMPLOG_MSG_COUNT - The number of messages to save (default: 50)

In the log path, "%n" will be replaced by the user's name and "%d" by the date in YYYYMMDDhhmmss format.
If, for mysterious reasons, you need to put a literal % inside the path, "%%" is supported.
