Perl module to filter entries out of an httpd log

This module provide a simple interface to filter entries out of an httpd logfile. The constructor can be passed regular expressions to match against particular fields on the logfile. It does its filtering line by line, using a filter method that takes a line of a logfile as input, and returns true if it matches, and false if it doesn’t.

There are two possible non-matching false conditions; one is where the line is a valid httpd logfile entry, but just doesn’t happen to match the filter where “” is returned. The other is where it is an invalid entry according to the format specified in the constructor.
