NAME ^

Log::Log4perl::MDC - Mapped Diagnostic Context

DESCRIPTION ^

Log::Log4perl allows loggers to maintain global thread-specific data, called the Nested Diagnostic Context (NDC) and Mapped Diagnostic Context (MDC).

The MDC is a simple thread-specific hash table, in which the application can stuff values under certain keys and retrieve them later via the "%X{key}" placeholder in Log::Log4perl::Layout::PatternLayouts.

Log::Log4perl::MDC->put($key, $value);

Store a value $value under key $key in the map.

my $value = Log::Log4perl::MDC->get($key);

Retrieve the content of the map under the specified key. Typically done by %X{key} in Log::Log4perl::Layout::PatternLayout. If no value exists to the given key, undef is returned.

my $text = Log::Log4perl::MDC->remove();

Delete all entries from the map.

Log::Log4perl::MDC->get_context();

Returns a reference to the hash table.

Please note that all of the methods above are class methods, there's no instances of this class. Since the thread model in perl 5.8.0 is "no shared data unless explicetly requested" the data structures used are just global (and therefore thread-specific).
