View console log in Terminal
Authored by: Hopper262 on May 31, '12 10:12:53PM

I didn't have a "Console Messages" item in my log list on Lion, but I was able to re-create it by going to "File" > "New System Log Query..." and adding the condition:

[ Facility ] [ is equal to ] com.apple.console

That matches the behavior of "syslog -C", according to the syslog man page (and my own brief testing).

View console log in Terminal

Great find.

Interestingly, the Terminal output is more readable. For example, in mine right now:

May 31 23:39:11 Walden [0x0-0x1ee1ee].com.apple.Safari[4862] <Notice>: May 31 23:39:11 Walden.local WebProcess[4864] <Error>: CGContextSetLineDash: invalid dash array: at least one element must be non-zero.
--- last message repeated 83 times ---
May 31 23:39:12 Walden [0x0-0x1ee1ee].com.apple.Safari[4862] <Notice>: May 31 23:39:12 Walden.local WebProcess[4864] <Error>: CGContextSetLineDash: invalid dash array: at least one element must be non-zero.
--- last message repeated 19 times ---

Whereas Console shows each of the repetitions.
