Why Nette uses error_log?

Hi.

My webhosting disables calling of function error_log, which is used in Nette here: https://api.nette.org/…ger.php.html#59

Why is Nette using this function? Which benefits it provides? Wouldn't be better to use only some fwrite, if error_log is used with second parametr equal 3 – it only appends message to error file?

I know I can solve my problem with writing my own Logger, but I am interested which benefits error_log has :-)

Thx.

I'm reading the comments, and it seems like there are more problems than benefits (simplicity is probably the only one).

If your webhosting disables function error_log, you have probably bigger problem.

Error_log is used because it supports limiting of log size and (I hope) file locking. But it can be replaced with file_put_contents().
