NAME

Log::Fine::Handle - Controls where to send logging output

SYNOPSIS

Sets up an output handle for log messages

    use Log::Fine;
    use Log::Fine::Handle;

    # Instantiate the handle (default values shown)
    my $handle = Log::Fine::Handle::Foo
        ->new( name      => "foo0",
               mask      => Log::Fine::Handle->DEFAULT_LOGMASK,
               formatter => Log::Fine::Formatter:Basic->new() );

    # See if a handle is loggable at a given level
    my $rc = $handle->isLoggable(INFO);

    # Write a message
    $handle->msgWrite(INFO, "Informational message", 1);

DESCRIPTION

A Log::Fine::Handle object controls where to send formatted log messages. The destination can be a file, syslog, a database table, or simply to output. Message formatting is then handled by a formatter object.

METHODS

bitmaskListEnabled

Gets a list of enabled bit masks

Returns

An array containing a list of strings representing bitmasks enabled for this handle

formatter

Getter/Setter for the objects formatter attribute

Parameters

Returns

A Log::Fine::Formatter object

isLoggable

Specifies whether the handle is loggable at the given level.

Parameters

  • level

    Name of level or numeric value representing level

Returns

1 if this level is loggable, undef otherwise

msgWrite

Tells the handle to output the given log message.

Note: msgWrite() is an internal method to the Log::Fine framework, meant to be sub-classed. Use "log" in Log::Fine::Logger for actual logging.

Parameters

  • level

    Level at which to log

  • message

    Message to log

  • skip

    Passed to caller for accurate method logging

Returns

None
