in reply to Wanted: Opinions on Logging Frameworks

Hi, FYI you can use Log::Any as the logger and Log::Dispatch as the output adapter, which then allows you to output to different destinations (file + screen for example).

Edit: Also you can use Log::Log4perl as the output adapter for Log::Any if you choose ...

The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

    Why do you like Log::Any for log production and Log::Dispatch for log consumption?

    Functionally, I can achieve the same thing with Log:::Log4perl appenders without have to use but one framework

    Please don't take my question and comment as being defensive or as an attack. I ask to understand. I agree that what you describe is technically correct.

      Because if I use Log::Any for production, I can use any adapter for consumption, meaning I can swap out or override easily. Also because most of the CPAN modules I like use Log::Any so I can control output from them in my own logging framework.

      Also note that I only gave Log::Dispatch as an example of an adapter, one that can multiplex. Normally you only need to load Log::Any and can use the default adapters that are provided with the companion Log::Any::Adapter.

      The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

        Thank you for your explanation. It makes a lot of sense. I'm off to MetaCPAN now to look at what modules have a reverse dependency on Log::Any :)
