Log::Report::Dispatcher::File - send messages to a file or file-handle
Log::Report::Dispatcher::File is a Log::Report::Dispatcher
dispatcher Log::Report::Dispatcher::File => 'stderr' , to => \*STDERR, accept => 'NOTICE-'; # close a dispatcher dispatcher close => 'stderr'; # let dispatcher open and close the file dispatcher FILE => 'mylog', to => '/var/log/mylog' , charset => 'utf-8'; ... dispatcher close => 'mylog'; # will close file # open yourself, then also close yourself open OUT, ">:encoding('iso-8859-1')", '/var/log/mylog' or fault "..."; dispatcher FILE => 'mylog', to => \*OUT; ... dispatcher close => 'mylog'; close OUT; # dispatch into a scalar my $output = ''; open $outfile, '>', \$output; dispatcher FILE => 'into-scalar', to => \$outfile; ... dispatcher close => 'into-scalar'; print $output;
This basic file logger accepts an file-handle or filename as destination.
Only when initiated with a FILENAME, the file will be closed. In any other case, nothing will be done.

Only used in combination with a FILENAME: throw away the old file if it exists. Probably you wish to append to existing information.
Use the LOCALE setting by default, which is LC_CTYPE or LC_ALL or LANG (in that order). If these contain a character-set which Perl understands, then that is used, otherwise silently ignored.
You can either specify a FILENAME, which is opened in append mode with autoflush on. Or pass any kind of FILE-HANDLE or some OBJECT which implements a
print() method. You probably want to have autoflush enabled on your FILE-HANDLES.
When cleaning-up the dispatcher, the file will only be closed in case of a FILENAME.
Returns the name of the opened file, or
undef in case this dispatcher was started from a file-handle or file-object.
