How to make /log option less verbose?

Hello,

I am using WinSCP.exe in an NT shell script, and it is working nicely. I use the "/log=C:\MyLogFile.log" option. The problem is that WinSCP provides "too much information" (as they say in America!).

Is there a way to specify that the logs be less verbose?

Thanks in advance.

Feature Request

The verbosity of the logging really does make it hard to use. It would be nice if upon error the log dumped all these details but with success was more succinct, for example just listing the open/close and files transferred. It reads like a debug log. Is it possible some form of non xml simple logging could be added?

That's what it is.

XML can be converted to anything you like easily. E.g. using XSLT.

It would be very helpful to have a less verbose (non-xml) logging option. A log with logon/logoff, commands, what files have been moved, and any failures and close/exit. Is this an unrealistic/not-going-to-happen request? Its just that the current debug log is hard to use at all and it grows so fast it has to be backed up frequently.

I do not think I like an idea of having third log file format.
