Description

A variant of Debug.Log that logs an error message to the console.

When you select the message in the console a connection to the context object will be drawn. This is very useful if you want know on which object an error occurs.

When the message is a string, rich text markup can be used to add emphasis. See the manual page about rich text for details of the different markup tags available.
