Examples:
The following is an example of a console line tracker extension point:

<extension point="org.eclipse.debug.ui.consoleLineTrackers">
  <consoleLineTracker 
     id="com.example.ExampleConsoleLineTracker"
     class="com.example.ExampleConsoleLineTracker"
     processType="ExampleProcessType">
  </consoleLineTracker>
</extension>
In the above example, the contributed line tracker will be notified as lines are appended to the console for processes of type "ExampleProcessType", which corresponds to the process attribute IProcess.ATTR_PROCESS_TYPE. Process types are client defined, and are set by clients that create processes.

API Information:
Value of the attribute class must be a fully qualified name of a Java class that implements the interface org.eclipse.debug.ui.console.IConsoleLineTracker.
