NAME

POE::Filter::Syslog - syslog parser

AUTHOR

Matt Cashner (sungo@cpan.org)

SYNOPSIS

  my $filter = POE::Filter::Syslog->new();
  $filter->get_one_start($buffer);
  while( my $record = $filter->get_one() ) {

  }

DESCRIPTION

This module follows the POE::Filter specification. Actually, it technically supports both the older specification (get) and the newer specification (get_one). If, at some point, POE deprecates the older specification, this module will drop support for it. As such, only use of the newer specification is recommended.

CONSTRUCTOR

    The "facility" number decoded from the pri.

  • severity
