Dear all,

I'm using the Chaste Heart. Using the member functions Heading and Report of the HeartEventHandler it is possible to write the specific time used for each part of the simulation to the console. Is there an easy way to write the output into a file in the output directory?

Thanks a lot for any answers!

At the moment the GenericEventHandler (which implements the HeartEventHandler printing) is hardcoded to write to std::cout (see for the source code that does this).

If this is something you would like, then it might be worth opening a ticket on our trac ticket system:

If you would just like total run time of parts of your code, you can use the Timer class with methods Reset and GetElapsedTime around blocks you want to time and write these to file 'manually'.

Thanks a lot for your answer. Since it is not really a bigger problem I will probably not open ticket.
