Is it possible to overwrite the log file from SET_LOG_FILE command?

If the log file specified already exists, the messages will be appended to the end of it. If you're running the same script a bazillion times in order to parse an issue, it becomes a nuisance to manually keep deleting the previous text/ and / or log file itself

    Answer ✓

    At the moment, there is not way to change the behavior when the log file already exists. I have added item #24940 to our task list so we can consider adding an option to the SET_LOG_FILE command. We will post a message on this thread when the status of the feature request changes.
