Is there a way to grab the all text from the tool execution dialog at the end of a python tool? I want to write the content to a log (10.1).

I'm used to log everything I do in my python scripts to the tool-message window with

like this..

arcpy.AddMessage("!!!!ERROR!!!!, unable to delete existing folder: " +  fpth)


At the end of my script I'd like to grab all messages and write them to a textfile at once.


something like:

allmsgs = arcpy.getMessages()  #but this only gets the last geoprocessing message
logfile = open("c:\\temp\mytoollog1.txt", 'w')


Maybe it can be grabbed from the results window?
