( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
At work we're examining Log::Log4perl as a logging system (as my previous post indicates). As I evaluate the module, I get the sense I'm not using it well, as I feel it wants to spread like kudzu through our entire project. I want to put a wrapper around it, but am not sure how to do that, as it is a singleton.
Here's why it seems like kudzu. Each script is starting out with something like this
use Log::Log4perl qw(:levels); Log::Log4perl::init('/home/code/log4perl-conf.txt'); my $logger = Log::Log4perl->get_logger($0); $SIG{__DIE__} = sub {$Log::Log4perl::caller_depth++; $logger->fatal('f +atal: ', @_); die @_;};
then each module needs to start out with
use Log::Log4perl qw(:levels); my $logger = Log::Log4perl->get_logger(__PACKAGE__); $logger->level($DEBUG);
Should there be this much overhead? When I see all this repeated code, I don't like it. This adds 4 lines to each program (not a big deal) but it also adds 4 lines to each .t script (?!?!) and 2 lines to module...
surely it shouldn't require this much repeated code?

Thanks for any ideas

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
