DESCRIPTION

Generally you won't have need to modify the log except through App::JobLog::Command::add, App::JobLog::Command::done, App::JobLog::Command::modify, or App::JobLog::Command::resume. There will sometimes be glitches, though: you will be away from the log when you do something or you will quit for the day without having punched out with App::JobLog::Command::done. This is when you need App::JobLog::Command::edit.

Most of the time you will simply need to add a missing DONE line -- the --close option. For this you need no text editor external to App::JobLog itself. If you need a full function editor you will need to define the editor parameter using App::JobLog::Command::configure. Then invoke this command without any options or arguments.

When you invoke the editor, App::JobLog reviews the log after you save, commenting out ill-formed lines and emitting warnings.
