NAME

Log::Syslog::Constants - Perl extension containing syslog priority constants as defined in RFC3164.

SYNOPSIS

  use Log::Syslog::Constants ':all';

  @severities = (
    LOG_EMERG, LOG_ALERT, LOG_CRIT, LOG_ERR, LOG_WARNING, LOG_NOTICE, LOG_INFO,
    LOG_DEBUG
  );

  @facilities = (
    LOG_KERN, LOG_USER, LOG_MAIL, LOG_DAEMON, LOG_AUTH, LOG_SYSLOG, LOG_LPR,
    LOG_NEWS, LOG_UUCP, LOG_CRON, LOG_AUTHPRIV, LOG_FTP, LOG_LOCAL0,
    LOG_LOCAL1, LOG_LOCAL2, LOG_LOCAL3, LOG_LOCAL4, LOG_LOCAL5, LOG_LOCAL6,
    LOG_LOCAL7
  );

  $info_constant = get_severity('INFO');
  $local0_constant = get_facility('local0');

DESCRIPTION

Syslog messages--as standardized in RFC3164--embed a priority number (the PRI part) which is composed of a severity and a facility value. The constants which encode these values are specified in section 4.1.1, and are made available by this module. For instance, the exportable LOG_FTP constant has a value of 11, the value for the FTP facility.

EXPORTS

Nothing is exported by default. You may optionally import individual constants and functions or groups of them:

  use Log::Syslog::Constants qw(:severities); # LOG_CRIT, LOG_DEBUG, etc
  use Log::Syslog::Constants qw(:facilities); # LOG_CRON, LOG_LOCAL3, etc
  use Log::Syslog::Constants qw(:functions); # get_facility, get_severity
  use Log::Syslog::Constants qw(:all); # all of the above

FUNCTIONS

  • get_facility($facility_string)

  • get_severity($severity_string)

    These functions look up a constant value by name, e.g. get_severity('info') == LOG_INFO.
