'''Logging Method.
A simple look at how you might start to think about building a logger for a TouchDesigner application. A logger is a great way to build out files with time stamped events. The more complex a project becomes, the more important it can become to have some means of logging the operations of your program. Here's a simple look at what that might look like.
Arguments
---------------
operator( touch object ) - the touch object whose path you'd like included in the log message
message( str ) - a message to include in the log
verbose( bool ) - a toggle for verbose or compact messages
text_port_print( bool ) - a toggle to print to the text port, or not
append_log( bool ) - a toggle to append to the log file , or not
Returns
---------------
None
Notes
---------------
You'll notice that some arguments receive default values. This is so you don't have
to include them in the call. This means that by default the message will be compact,
will print to the text port, and will append the log file.
