NAME ^

Device::Modem::Log::File - Text files logging plugin for Device::Modem class

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Device::Modem;

  my $box = Device::Modem->new( log => 'file', ... );
  my $box = Device::Modem->new( log => 'file,name=/tmp/mymodem.log', ... );
  ...

DESCRIPTION ^

This is meant for an example log class to be hooked to Device::Modem to provide one's favourite logging mechanism. You just have to implement your own new(), write() and close() methods.

Default text file is /tmp/modem.log. On Windows platforms, this goes into %TEMP%/modem.log or %TMP%/modem.log, whichever is defined. By default, if the folder of the log file does not exist, it is created.

This class is loaded automatically by Device::Modem class when an object is instantiated, and it is the default logging mechanism for Device::Modem class.

Normally, you should not need to use this class directly, because there are many other zillions of modules that do logging better than this.

Also, it should be pondered whether to replace Device::Modem::Log::File and mates with those better classes in a somewhat distant future.

REQUIRES

Device::Modem
