[logback-dev] log file parser requierements

Hi Johannes,


The goal of logback-decoder is to convert one or more lines found in a
log file (containing text) into a series of objects of type
ILoggingEvent. Thus, FileAppender converts instances of ILoggingEvent
into one or more lines in a log file, a decoder performs the inverse

It should be assumed that the first line of the log file contains the
pattern that was used to format the output. See
http://logback.qos.ch/manual/encoders.html#outputPatternAsHeader for
further details.

Is the above sufficient to get you started?
