Log::Dispatch::File::Locked - Subclass of Log::Dispatch::File to facilitate locking
my $log = Log::Dispatch->new(
outputs => [
min_level => 'info',
filename => 'Somefile.log',
mode => '>>',
newline => 1
$log->emerg("I've fallen and I can't get up");
This module acts exactly like Log::Dispatch::File except that it obtains an exclusive lock on the file while opening it.
Note that if you are using this output because you want to write to a file from multiple processes, you should open the file with the append mode (>>), or else it's quite likely that one process will overwrite another.
