any file or folder name which starts with a dot is automatically a hidden file, its a very simple system. If you name a file or folder this way it will become hidden and may disappear if you do not have 'show hidden files' on (ctrl+h)

Yeah. I know that. But thank you for your explanation. ;o) I tried to ask you if ~/subdownloader.log should begin with dot...

Hi, we have removed the .log in linux systems, you can call the program as

subdownloader -d

to get debug messages.
In Windows the subdownloader.log appears only in case of errors of python.
