Re: View console log in Terminal

What's different between this and the stock "Console Messages" query provided by Console.app (in the "Show Log List" sidebar)? That query certainly looked to me like the same thing as the old console.log file (and it looks like a prettier version of what syslog -C outputs).

Or have OS versions post-10.5 removed the "Console Messages" query and just left the "All Messages" one?

That said, syslog -C does look like a handy tip for ssh usage, where I have bemoaned the loss of the console.log file.

As I say in the hint, when Leopard came around, they removed that from Console.

Sorry, looking back I see I wasn't clear.

I was talking about the "Console Messages" item that's present by default in the sidebar starting on 10.5, replacing the item for "console.log" (the file), which was removed on 10.5.

The "Console Messages" item most certainly is present on 10.5; it was introduced then, not removed then ;-) Has it been removed post-10.5, as my second paragraph asked?
