       log_mf_h - An event handler that logs events to disk.


       This  module is a gen_event handler module that can be installed in any gen_event process.
       It logs onto disk all events that are sent to an event manager. Each event is written as a
       binary,  which  makes  the  logging  very fast. However, a tool such as the Report Browser
       (rb(3erl)) must be used to read the files. The events are written to multiple files.  When
       all files have been used, the first one is reused and overwritten. The directory location,
       the number of files, and the size of  each  file  are  configurable.  The  directory  will
       include one file called index, and report files 1, 2, ....



              Term to be sent to gen_event:add_handler/3.


       init(Dir, MaxBytes, MaxFiles) -> Args

       init(Dir, MaxBytes, MaxFiles, Pred) -> Args


                 Dir = file:filename()
                 MaxBytes = integer() >= 0
                 MaxFiles = 1..255
                 Pred = fun((Event :: term()) -> boolean())
                 Args = args()

              Initiates  the  event  handler.  Returns  Args,  which  is  to be used in a call to
              gen_event:add_handler(EventMgr, log_mf_h, Args).

              Dir specifies which directory to use for the log files. MaxBytes specifies the size
              of  each  individual  file.  MaxFiles  specifies how many files are used. Pred is a
              predicate function  used  to  filter  the  events.  If  no  predicate  function  is
              specified, all events are logged.
