Net::Jabber::Debug - Jabber Debug Library


  Net::Jabber::Debug is a module that provides a developer easy access
  to logging debug information.


  Debug is a helper module for the Net::Jabber modules.  It provides
  the Net::Jabber modules with an object to control where, how, and
  what is logged.

Basic Functions

    $Debug = new Net::Jabber::Debug();


    $Debug->Log("Connection established");


Basic Functions

    new(hash) - creates the Debug object.  The hash argument is passed
                to the Init function.  See that function description
                below for the valid settings.

    Init(level=>integer,  - initializes the debug object.  The level
         file=>string,      determines the maximum level of debug
         header=>string,    messages to log:
         setdefault=>0|1,     0 - Base level Output (default)
         usedefault=>0|1,     1 - High level API calls
         time=>0|1)           2 - Low level API calls
                            The file determines where the debug log
                            goes.  You can either specify a path to
                            a file, or "stdout" (the default).  "stdout"
                            tells Debug to send all of the debug info
                            sent to this object to go to stdout.
                            header is a string that will preappended
                            to the beginning of all log entries.  This
                            makes it easier to see what generated the
                            log entry (default is "Debug").
                            setdefault saves the current filehandle
                            and makes it available for other Debug
                            objects to use.  To use the default set
                            usedefault to 1.  The time parameter
                            specifies whether or not to add a timestamp
                            to the beginning of each logged line.

    Log0(array) - Logs the elements of the array at the corresponding
    Log1(array)   debug level.  If you pass in a reference to an
    Log2(array)   array or hash then they are printed in a readable


  $Debug = new Net::Jabber:Debug(level=>2,


    $Debug->Log2("level 2 test");

    $hash{a} = "atest";
    $hash{b} = "btest";


  You would get the following log:

    Example: test
    Example: level 2 test
    Example: hashtest { a=>"atest" b=>"btest" }

  If you has set the level to 1 instead of 2 you would get:

    Example: test
    Example: hashtest { a=>"atest" b=>"btest" }
