Trying to output my LogCat to a file

I've been told it's a command line option. But Eclipse's Run!Run Configurations...!Target!Additional Emulator Command Line Options field is already occupied with

-sdcard "C:\android-sdk-windows\tools\sd9m.img"

If I wanted to write something like

adb logcat -s MessageBox > "C:\Users\me\Documents\LogCatOutput.txt"

then where do I write it, and how (i.e., is the syntax even correct)? I need to output only a filtered tag, not verbose. ("MessageBox" is my TAG. Again I don't know if any of this punctuation is right, or even where the command goes.)

Thanks for any help.


There should be an adb.exe file in C:\android-sdk-windows\tools. You can invoke this manually from a DOS command prompt:

cd C:\android-sdk-windows\tools
adb logcat -s MessageBox > "C:\Users\me\Documents\LogCatOutput.txt"

There's no need to bother with Eclipse in this case.
