NAME ^

Log::Facile - Perl extension for facile logging

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Log::Facile;

  my $logger = Log::Facile->new('/foo/var/log/tmp.log');
  $logger->info('Log::Facile instance created!');
  $logger->debug('flag off');
  $logger->error('error occurred! detail.......');
  $logger->warn('warning');
  $logger->fatal('fatal error!');

  $logger->set('debug_flag', 1);
  $logger->debug('flag on');

This sample puts following logging.

  2008/08/25 01:01:49 [INFO] Log::Facile instance created!
  2008/08/25 01:01:49 [ERROR] error occurred! detail.......
  2008/08/25 01:01:49 [WARN] warning
  2008/08/25 01:01:49 [FATAL] fatal error!
  2008/08/25 01:01:49 [DEBUG] flag on

Log swapping sample is following.

  $logger->swap('/foo/var/log/old');

or

  $logger->set('swap_dir', '/foo/var/log/old');
  $logger->swap();

This time swapped log filename is 'tmp.log.1'. This file will be renamed 'tmp.log.2' while upcoming log swapping. I mean, the incremented number means older.

You can change date output format from default('yyyy/mm/dd hh:mi:ss').

  $logger->set('date_format', 'yyyy-mm-dd hh-mi-ss');
  $logger->info('date format changed');
  $logger->set('date_format', 'yymmdd hhmiss');
  $logger->info('date format changed');

This logger outputs date in following format.

  2008-11-29 19-23-03 [INFO] date format changed
  081129 192304 [INFO] date format changed

This is how to change level display string.

  $logger->set('level_debug', 'DBG')
         ->set('level_info',  'INF')
         ->set('level_error', 'ERR');

  $logger->info('Log::Facile instance created!');
  $logger->debug('flag off');
  $logger->error('error occurred! detail.......');

Outputs followings.

  2008/11/30 04:28:51 [INF] Log::Facile instance created!
  2008/11/30 04:28:51 [DBG] flag off
  2008/11/30 04:28:51 [ERR] error occurred! detail.......

The default log template is

  'TEMPLATE' => 'DATE [LEVEL] MESSAGE',

The defauilt log items are "TEMPLATE", "DATE", "LEVEL" and "MESSAGE". It is able to edit default ones or add more items.

You can modify the log template like this.

  $logger->set('date_format', 'dd/mm/yy hh:mi:ss');
  $logger->set($Log::Facile::TEMPLATE, 'HOSTNAME', $hostname);
  $logger->set($Log::Facile::TEMPLATE, 'TEMPLATE', 'HOSTNAME - DATE (LEVEL) MESSAGE');

  $logger->info('template changed.');

Outputs followings.

  dev01 - 07/12/08 01:40:11 (INFO) template changed.

Aside, the accessors in this module checks your typo.

  $logger->set('level_errror', 'ERR')

will be croaked.

  invalid field name :-P - level_errror at ./using_Log_Facile.pl line 22
