Auto Monitor Logcat

I am taking a class of making android apps.

In one of the video, he says that after we make it run as android application, we will get a message of "Auto Monitor Logcat", which I did not get. Does anyone know a cause of it?

Don't worry if it doesn't appear - I think it's enabled by default. I just didn't want students to be surprised if it does appear.

Basically what it means is that when you run your app from Eclipse, the logcat monitor will automatically update based on the logging information from the emulator.
