NAME ^

Paranoid::Log::File - File Logging Functions

VERSION ^

$Id: File.pm,v 0.83 2010/04/15 23:23:28 acorliss Exp $

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Paranoid::Log;
  
  enableFacility('events', 'file', 'debug', '+', $filename);

DESCRIPTION ^

This module logs messages to the log files, and is safe for use with forked children logging to the same files. Each child will open their own filehandles and use advisory locking for writes.

This module should not be used directly, Paranoid::Log should be your exclusive interface for logging.

SUBROUTINES/METHODS ^

NOTE: Given that this module is not intended to be used directly nothing is exported.

init

log

remove

dump

DEPENDENCIES ^

o

Fcntl

o

Paranoid::Debug

o

Paranoid::Filesystem

o

Paranoid::Input

SEE ALSO ^

o

Paranoid::Log

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS ^

This isn't a high performance module when dealing with a high logging rate with high concurrency. This is due to the advisory locking requirement and the seeks to the end of the file with every message. This facility is intended as a kind of lowest-common demoninator for programs that need some kind of logging capability.
