( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm trying to read windows EventLog:
$evHandle->Read(EVENTLOG_FORWARDS_READ|EVENTLOG_SEQUENTIAL_READ,0,$hr) ||die; use Data::Dumper;say Dumper($hr); Win32::EventLog::GetMessageText($hr);# Try to decode the # message text? print "Computer:".$hr->{Computer}." Source:".$hr->{Source}"; print " TS:".scalar(gmtime($hr->{TimeGenerated})); print " Category:".$hr->{Category}; print " EventType:".$hr->{EventType}." TXT:".$hr->{Message};
and for some messages this works fine, but some come up empty: "System Computer:LUBSS056 Source:Server Agents TS:Thu Apr 10 14:00:44 2008 Category:1 EventType:4 TXT:."

As far as I know, this might happen if I'm reading the EventLog remotely, and I don't have access to EventLog decoding dlls on my machine, but since I'm reading locally, I believe this shouldn't happen.

In reply to Win32::EventLog: how to convert EventLog hash to text by Eyck

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
