Turns on logging for all calls to a function.

This means whenever that function is called, a log message will be created inside the Console Panel showing the function name, the parameters and their values.

Syntax

monitor(fn)

Parameters

fn

Function to log calls for. (required)

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)
