Log::Fine::Handle::File - Output log messages to a file
Provides logging to a file
use Log::Fine; use Log::Fine::Handle::File; # Get a new logger my $log = Log::Fine->logger("foo"); # register a file handle (default values shown) my $handle = Log::Fine::Handle::File ->new( name => 'file0', mask => LOGMASK_EMERG | LOGMASK_ALERT | LOGMASK_CRIT | LOGMASK_ERR | LOGMASK_WARNING | LOGMASK_NOTICE | LOGMASK_INFO, dir => "/var/log", file => "myapp.log", autoflush => 0 ); # register the handle $log->registerHandle($handle); # log something $log->(INFO, "Opened new log handle");
Log::Fine::Handle::File provides logging to a file. Note that this module will log messages to a specific file. Support for dynamic time-stamps in file names (e.g.,
myapp-080523.log) is provided by Log::Fine::Handle::File::Timestamp. Further features, such as log file rotation a la syslog can be added by sub-classing this class.
The following parameters can be passed to Log::Fine::Handle::File->new():
[optional] Name of this object (see Log::Fine). Will be autoset if not specified.
Mask to set the handle to (see Log::Fine::Handle)
Directory to place the log file
Name of the log file. Note that if the given file is an absolute path, then
dir will be ignored.
[default: 0] If set to true, will close the filehandle after every invocation of "msgWrite". NOTE: will significantly slow down logging speed if multiple messages are logged at once. Consider autoflush instead
Getter for file handle. If a file handle is not defined, then one will be created.
Override this method if you wish to support features such as time-stamped and/or rotating files.
