NAME ^

Games::EverQuest::LogLineParser - Perl extension for parsing lines from the EverQuest log file.

SYNOPSIS ^

   use Games::EverQuest::LogLineParser;

   my $eqlog_file = 'c:/everquest/eqlog_Soandso_veeshan.txt';

   open(my $eq_log_fh, $eqlog_file) || die "$eqlog_file: $!";

   while (<$eq_log_fh>)
      {
      my $parsed_line = parse_eq_line($_);
      next unless $parsed_line;
      do_something($parsed_line);
      }

DESCRIPTION ^

Games::EverQuest::LogLineParser provides functions related to parsing the interesting bits from an EverQuest log file.

Functions

parse_eq_line($eq_line)

Returns a hash ref, containing variable keys depending on the determined line type of the given log line. If the line was not recognized, then false is returned.

Two keys that will always be present, if the line was recognized, are time_stamp and line_type. The first will contain the time string from the line, while the latter will be a string indicating how the line was classified. A given line_type hash ref, will always contain the same keys, though some of the values may be undef or empty.

For a list of line types (and associated keys) see the "LINE TYPES" section below.

parse_eq_line_type($line_type, $eq_line)

If you expect a line to be of a certain type, and want to test or parse it as that type, you can use this function. Call it with the expected line type and the log line to test or parse.

Returns a hash ref, containing variable keys depending on the type of line that was passed. If the line could not be parsed as the given line type, then false is returned.

Two keys that will always be present, if the line was recognized, are time_stamp and line_type. The first will contain the time string from the line, while the latter will be a string indicating how the line was classified. A given line_type hash ref, will always contain the same keys, though some of the values may be undef or empty.

For a list of line types (and associated keys) see the "LINE TYPES" section below.

parse_eq_time_stamp($parsed_line-{'time_stamp'})>

Given the time_stamp value from a parsed line, returns a hash ref with the following structure:

   ## sample input [Mon Oct 13 00:42:36 2003]
   {
    day   => 'Mon',
    month => 'Oct',
    date  => '13',
    hour  => '00',
    min   => '42',
    sec   => '36',
    year  => '2003',
   }
all_possible_line_types()

Returns a list of all possible line types for the hash refs that are returned by parse_eq_line().

all_possible_keys()

Returns a list of all possible keys for the hash refs that are returned by parse_eq_line().

EXPORT ^

By default the parse_eq_line, parse_eq_line_type, parse_eq_time_stamp, all_possible_line_types and all_possible_keys subroutines are exported.

SCRIPTS ^

Several scripts have been included as both tools and examples. All default to STDOUT for output, but accept an optional file name for the second argument as well.

eqlog2csv.pl <eqlog_file> [output_file]
   Converts an EverQuest log file into a CSV file (uses '|' character rather than commas).
eqlog_line_type_frequency.pl <eqlog_file> [output_file]
   Reports the frequency of all line types seen in the given EverQuest log file.
eqlog_unrecognized_lines.pl <eqlog_file> [output_file]
   Prints unrecognized lines from an EverQuest log file.

BUGS ^

I imagine the primary source of faults in this module will be in which line types it understands, and how well it can distinguish them. If you come across lines in you log files that I haven't handled (see eqlog_unrecognized_lines.pl), or that are handled incorrectly, please send the line to me, with an explanation of why it was not parsed in accordance with your expectations. If you're up to it, a patch (test suite too please) for handling the offending line would be great.

TO DO ^

- add unrecognized yet useful lines
   MOTD, GUILD_MOTD, BEGIN_MEMORIZE
- optimize ordering of @line_types

SEE ALSO ^
