Log::Any::Adapter::FileHandle - A basic Log::Any::Adapter to forward messages to a filehandle


version 0.010


  use Log::Any qw($log);
  use Log::Any::Adapter;

  # Send all logs to Log::Any::Adapter::FileHandle

  $log->info("Hello world");


This module is a basic adapter that will simply forward log messages to a filehandle, or any object that supports a 'print' method (IO::String, IO::Socket::INET, Plack's $env->{psgi.errors} object, etc).

I've created it so that my scripts running under damontools or runit can output messages to locally defined logs. It does not timestamp messages, that responsbility is delegated to the external log capture mechanism.

You can override the default configuration by passing extra arguments to the Log::Any set_adapter method:


Pass in your IO::Handle-like object here. If this isn't specified, it will default to opening STDERR. If the object supports an autoflush method, autoflush will be enabled, unless no_autoflush is set.


Disable automatically turning on autoflush on the fh object.


A sprintf string that controls the formatting of the message. It is supplied 2 arguments: the log level as supplied by Log::Any (usually all-lowercase), and the message to be logged. The default is "[%s] %s\n". This value should contain the log record terminator, such as a newline.


one of 'none' (default), 'newline', or 'nonascii'. Controls how messages are pre-filtered before passing them to a filehandle. This is handy if you want do smoosh messages into a single line (for easier filtering + processing), or if you want to filter non ascii characters for safe terminal printing.
