145 - MobCatcher Logging

I would like to know if it would be possible to make logs available for MobCatcher.
Basically, any time a mob is caught or release, an entry would be made that has a time stamp, user, type of mob, etc.

Also, is it at all possible to read the data in the mobData.dat file, and what is needed to read that data?

    This plugin has protection signs. Players can place them and then other players cant capture mobs inside its radius.

    There's a brief guide about it here

    I had an issue on my server with people stealing animals from others, and I was trying to find a way to track it. It's not an issue that seems to come up too often though.

    It is not possible to read the mobData.dat file without the exact class that I serialize and deserialize it with. .dat files are super generic and you have to know exactly whats in them to be able to read them. Depending on what you are wanting to do with that information, there might be another way, if you care to explain.

    A log file is definitely possible, but I currently lack the motivation to do so, if I'm being perfectly honest.
