NAME ^

Catalyst::Log - Catalyst Log Class

SYNOPSIS ^

    $log = $c->log;
    $log->debug($message);
    $log->info($message);
    $log->warn($message);
    $log->error($message);
    $log->fatal($message);

    if ( $log->is_debug ) {
         # expensive debugging
    }

See Catalyst.

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides the default, simple logging functionality for Catalyst. If you want something different set $c->log in your application module, e.g.:

    $c->log( MyLogger->new );

Your logging object is expected to provide the interface described here. Good alternatives to consider are Log::Log4Perl and Log::Dispatch.

If you want to be able to log arbitrary warnings, you can do something along the lines of

    $SIG{__WARN__} = sub { MyApp->log->warn(@_); };

however this is (a) global, (b) hairy and (c) may have unexpected side effects. Don't say we didn't warn you.

LOG LEVELS ^

debug

    $log->is_debug;
    $log->debug($message);

info

    $log->is_info;
    $log->info($message);

warn

    $log->is_warn;
    $log->warn($message);

error

    $log->is_error;
    $log->error($message);

fatal

    $log->is_fatal;
    $log->fatal($message);

METHODS ^

new

Constructor. Defaults to enable all levels unless levels are provided in arguments.

    $log = Catalyst::Log->new;
    $log = Catalyst::Log->new( 'warn', 'error' );

level

Contains a bitmask of the currently set log levels.

levels

Set log levels

    $log->levels( 'warn', 'error', 'fatal' );

enable

Enable log levels

    $log->enable( 'warn', 'error' );

disable

Disable log levels

    $log->disable( 'warn', 'error' );

is_debug

is_error

is_fatal

is_info

is_warn

Is the log level active?

abort

Should Catalyst emit logs for this request? Will be reset at the end of each request.

*NOTE* This method is not compatible with other log apis, so if you plan to use Log4Perl or another logger, you should call it like this:

    $c->log->abort(1) if $c->log->can('abort');

autoflush

When enabled (default), messages are written to the log immediately instead of queued until the end of the request.

This option, as well as abort, is provided for modules such as Catalyst::Plugin::Static::Simple to be able to programmatically suppress the output of log messages. By turning off autoflush (application-wide setting) and then setting the abort flag within a given request, all log messages for the given request will be suppressed. abort can still be set independently of turning off autoflush, however. It just means any messages sent to the log up until that point in the request will obviously still be emitted, since autoflush means they are written in real-time.

If you need to turn off autoflush you should do it like this (in your main app class):

    after setup_finalize => sub {
      my $c = shift;
      $c->log->autoflush(0) if $c->log->can('autoflush');
    };

_send_to_log

 $log->_send_to_log( @messages );

This protected method is what actually sends the log information to STDERR. You may subclass this module and override this method to get finer control over the log output.

psgienv $env

    $log->psgienv($env);

NOTE: This is not meant for public consumption.

Set the PSGI environment for this request. This ensures logs will be sent to the right place. If the environment has a psgix.logger, it will be used. If not, we will send logs to psgi.errors if that exists. As a last fallback, we will send to STDERR as before.

clear_psgi

Clears the PSGI environment attributes set by "psgienv".
