NAME

Log::Dispatch::File::Locked - Subclass of Log::Dispatch::File to facilitate locking

VERSION

version 2.56

SYNOPSIS

  use Log::Dispatch;

  my $log = Log::Dispatch->new(
      outputs => [
          [
              'File::Locked',
              min_level => 'info',
              filename  => 'Somefile.log',
              mode      => '>>',
              newline   => 1
          ]
      ],
  );

  $log->emerg("I've fallen and I can't get up");

DESCRIPTION

This module acts exactly like Log::Dispatch::File except that it obtains an exclusive lock on the file while opening it.

Note that if you are using this output because you want to write to a file from multiple processes, you should open the file with the append mode (>>), or else it's quite likely that one process will overwrite another.

"flock" in perlfunc
