Class::Usul::Log - Create methods for each logging level that encode their output

Synopsis

   use Moo;
   use Class::Usul::Log;

   has '_log' => is => 'ro', isa => LogType,
      lazy    => TRUE,   builder => '_build__log',
      reader  => 'log', init_arg => 'log';

   sub _build__log {
      my $self = shift; return Class::Usul::Log->new( builder => $self );
   }

   # Can now call the following
   $self->log->debug( $text );
   $self->log->info(  $text );
   $self->log->warn(  $text );
   $self->log->error( $text );
   $self->log->fatal( $text );

Description

Creates methods for each logging level that encode their output. The logging levels are defined by the log levels constant

Configuration and Environment

Defines the following attributes

debug

Debug flag defaults to FALSE

encoding

Optional output encoding. If present output to the logfile is encoded

log

Optional log object. Will instantiate an instance of Log::Handler if this is not provided

log_attributes

Attributes used to create the log object

logfile

Path to the logfile

Subroutines/Methods

BUILDARGS

Monkey with the constructors signature

BUILD

Creates a set of methods defined by the LOG_LEVELS constant. The method expects $self->log and $self->encoding to be set. It encodes the output string prior calling the log method at the given level

filehandle

Return the loggers file handle

get_log_attributes

Returns the hash ref passed to the constructor of the log class. Returns undef to indicate no logging, an instance of Class::Null is used instead

Diagnostics

None
