Log::Any::IfLOG - Load Log::Any only if "logging is enabled"
This document describes version 0.07 of Log::Any::IfLOG (from Perl distribution Log-Any-IfLOG), released on 2015-08-17.
use Log::Any::IfLOG '$log';
This module is a drop-in replacement/wrapper for Log::Any to be used from your modules. This is a quick-hack solution to avoid the cost of loading Log::Any under "normal condition". Since Log::Any 1.00, startup overhead increases to about 7-10ms on my PC/laptop (from under 1ms for the previous version). Because I want to keep startup overhead of CLI apps under 50ms (see Perinci::CmdLine::Lite) to keep tab completion from getting a noticeable lag, every millisecond counts.
This module will only load Log::Any when "logging is enabled". Otherwise, it will just return without loading anything. If
$log is requested in import, a fake object is returned that responds to methods like
is_debug and so on but will do nothing when called and just return 0.
To determine "logging is enabled":
Is $ENABLE_LOG defined?
This package variable can be used to force "logging enabled" (if true) or "logging disabled" (if false). Normally, you don't need to do this except for testing.
Is Log::Any is already loaded (from %INC)?
If Log::Any is already loaded, it means we have taken the overhead hit anyway so logging is enabled.
Is one of log-related environment variables true?
Otherwise, logging is disabled.
This setting can be forced to force loading Log::Any or not.
