Where do I find the NetBeans log file to attach to the error report?

The NetBeans IDE keeps its log messages in a file called /var/log/messages.log in the NetBeans userdir. The log file is very useful for troubleshooting and tracking down sources of error. When you report an issue, you should attach this file to the report.

Here are some examples where a user named joe would find the NetBeans IDE 7.2 log file on various operating systems:

OS Path
