1 simpletest.module simpletest_log_read($test_id, $prefix, $test_class, $during_test = FALSE)

$prefix: The database prefix to which the log relates.

$test_class: The test class to which the log relates.

$during_test: Indicates that the current file directory path is a temporary file file directory used during testing.
