Logfile::EPrints::Hit - Generic 'hit' object

DESCRIPTION

This object represents a single entry in a log file and doesn't proscribe any particular schema.

This uses the 'AUTOLOAD' mechanism to allow any variable to be defined as a method.

'Hit' objects are passed between filters that may add additional functionality (e.g. by subclassing the hit object).
