Description Author

This class can log and render current script actions.

It can add messages to a log array about actions performed by each script. It keeps track of the action title, current time and importance level.

The class can display all the messages in a HTML page with the time that passed between actions, as well a summary with total elapsed time and the action that took longer.

Each action appears displayed using different CSS classes named after the action level.

author: Axel Hahn

(1) Trigger a message with add() to add a marker
(2) The render() method lists all items in a table with time since start
    and the delta to the last message. 
    An additional div on top right shows the execution time total
    and the time of the longest action (with a link to it).

See the example.php.

You don't need to write any print_r and var_dump anymore and remove it
afterwards. Add _GET and _POST, and put a $oLog->add() at start and end
of any action you want to measure.

For production do not execute render method. Wrap it with a flag:

	if ($bIsDevelopEnvironment){
		echo $oLog->render();

If you init the logger globally you can put requests into your class

     * add a log messsage
     * @global object $oLog
     * @param  string $sMessage  messeage text
     * @param  string $sLevel    warnlevel of the given message
     * @return bool
    private function log($sMessage, $sLevel = "info") {
        global $oLog;
        if (!$oLog ||! is_object($oLog) || !method_exists($oLog, "add")){
            return false;
        return $oLog->add("class " . __CLASS__ . " - " . $sMessage, $sLevel);
