Set of Perl modules that allows you to enhance logging capabilities
The LogAgent module provides an abstract layer for logging and tracing, which is independent from the actual method used to physically perform those activities. It acts as an agent hence the name that collects the requests and delegates processing to a sublayer the logging driver.
The LogAgent module is meant to be used in all reusable components, since they cannot know in advance how the application which ends up using them will perform its logging activities either by emitting messages on stdout and errors on stderr, or by directing messages to log files, or by using syslog3.
The logging interface is common for all the logging drivers, and is therefore the result of a compromise between many logging schemes any information given at this level must be either handled by all drivers, or may be ignored depending on the application’s final choice.
WARNING THIS INTERFACE IS STILL SOMEWHAT ALPHA AND COULD STILL CHANGE DEPENDING ON THE FEEDBACK THE AUTHOR RECEIVES, WITHOUT ANY BACKWARD COMPATIBILITY ASSURANCE.
