 # open yourself, then also close yourself
 open OUT, ">:encoding('iso-8859-1')", '/var/log/mylog'
     or fault "...";
 dispatcher FILE => 'mylog', to => \*OUT;
 ...

DESCRIPTION ^

This basic file logger accepts an file-handle or filename as destination.

METHODS ^

Constructors

$obj->close()

Only when initiated with a FILENAME, the file will be closed. In any other case, nothing will be done.

Log::Report::Dispatcher::File->new(TYPE, NAME, OPTIONS)

  accept         Log::Report::Dispatcher  depend on mode

  replace                                 false
  to                                      <required>
accept => REASONS
charset => CHARSET
format_reason => 'UPPERCASE'|'LOWERCASE'|'UCFIRST'|'IGNORE'|CODE
locale => LOCALE
mode => 'NORMAL'|'VERBOSE'|'ASSERT'|'DEBUG'|0..3
replace => BOOLEAN

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.

to => FILENAME|FILEHANDLE|OBJECT

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.

Accessors

$obj->filename()

Returns the name of the opened file, or undef in case this dispatcher was started from a file-handle or file-object.
