[ros-users] Retrieving log level at runtime

I would like to retrieve the log level at runtime. I want to do so 
because I have (aseba) messages that I have to dump into a 
std::ostringstream prior to print their content on a ROS_DEBUG_STREAM. 
Of course, I would like to perform this dump operation only if the 
logging level is currently debug. Is there a public API to do so? If 
not, what is the internal variable to check, and how stable will it be? 
I did not find the answer to this question in the rosconsole 
documentation nor in the mailing list archive.

Thank you, best regards,


Dr Stéphane Magnenat
