POE::Component::Log4perl - Perl extension for the POE Environemt
use POE::Component::Log4perl; POE::Component::Log4perl->spawn( Alias => 'logger', Category => 'default', ConfigFile => 'logging.conf', GetLogfile => \&get_logfile, );
Well, just what everybody needs, another logging module for the POE environment. This one will encapsulate the Log4perl modules to do the logging.
This modules understands the following parameters:
Alias - The alias for the session Category - The category to use from the configuration file ConfigFile - The name of the configuration file GetLogfile - This points to a function to return the logfile name
A word about the "GetLogfile" parameter. In my environment, I use a single centralized configuration file to handle the logging environment. This makes management a bit easier. Log4perl allows this to happen by using a callback to your main routine to retrieve the filename. The GetLogfile allows you to name the function to handle that task. The function name should match the one in the configuration file. If you don't use this ability then you can safely ignore this parameter.
This event will insert an "INFO" line into your logfile.
$poe_kernel->post('logger' => info => 'my cool message');
This event will insert a "WARN" line into your logfile.
This event will insert an "ERROR" line into your logfile.
This event will insert a "FATAL" line into your logfile.
$poe_kernel->post('logger' => fatal => 'bad mojo'); $poe_kernel->yield('shutdown');
This event will insert a "DEBUG" line into your logfile.
