[edit] fn

Function to log calls for. (required)

[edit] Examples

Having the following function:

  1. function faculty(n)
  2. {
  3.     if (n==1 || n==0)
  4.         return 1;
  5.  
  6.     var facNumber = 1;
  7.     for (i = 1; i <= n; i++)
  8.         facNumber *= i;
  9.  
  10.     return facNumber;
  11. }
monitor(faculty)

This enables logging of calls to the function faculty(). So calling this function like faculty(5), a log message like the following will be created:

faculty(n=5)
