I'm new in the Bitcoin world, but I want do the script. The script will read "blocks" from debug.log, but now when I looking to a debug.log I don't see anything about blocks. Is it possible?

Here is example from my log:

  • What is "the script"? – Andrew Chow Jul 30 at 15:35
  • debug.log is just a software level log; you should not rely on it for any serious data, as it offers no actual way to verify anything – Raghav Sood Jul 30 at 15:39

when I looking to a debug.log I don't see anything about blocks. Is it possible?

I expect the net category of log information should contain entries relating to the exchange of blocks with peers but I would not expect the full block data to be logged.

The name of the debug log suggests it is mainly intended as a way to investigate problems, and not intended as a means to routinely extract block data. You should use the RPC API for that.
