Log::Log4perl::Filter::StringMatch - Filter on log message string


    log4perl.filter.Match1               = Log::Log4perl::Filter::StringMatch
    log4perl.filter.Match1.StringToMatch = blah blah
    log4perl.filter.Match1.AcceptOnMatch = true


This Log4perl custom filter checks if the currently submitted message matches a predefined regular expression, as set in the StringToMatch parameter. It uses common Perl 5 regexes.

The additional parameter AcceptOnMatch defines if the filter is supposed to pass or block the message on a match (true or false).
