* This is one of the log4c example programs.
* In this example we link against a shared library that has
* additional formatters and appenders.  This shows how easy it is to
* add in more appenders and formatters to the log4c framework.
* With gcc this file is in fact exactly the same as application_1.c--
* only at link time it is linked with a new library.  
* With other compilers using explicit initialization, this program needs
* to explicitly tell the custom appender/formatter lib to initialize
* itself and it's appenders and formatters.

  * Here, if using explicit initialization (as opposed to implicit via the
    * init phase of the library) it's important to initialize the custom appenders
  * and layouts before calling log4c_init().
  * This is because when log4c_init() parses the config file it looks for the
  * types mentioned in the file to set up the relations between categories, 
  * appenders and layouts.  If it does not find a coresponding type in the 
  * internal hash tables, it creates one with that type name, but the function
  * table is not set up--so that at log time nothing happens. 
  * You could choose to wrap the log4c_category_log with some macro
  * that then calls an accessor to get your pre-created category
  * mycat and then logs to it.  But for now we just focus on the fact
  * that we are using log4crc to have this application use the new
  * formatters and appenders we wrote as examples
