Mail::SpamAssassin::LoUser(Contributed Perl DocMail::SpamAssassin::Logger(3pm)



NAME
       Mail::SpamAssassin::Logger - SpamAssassin logging module

SYNOPSIS
         use Mail::SpamAssassin::Logger;

         $SIG{__WARN__} = sub {
           log_message("warn", $_[0]);
         };

         $SIG{__DIE__} = sub {
           log_message("error", $_[0]) if $_[0] !~ /\bin eval\b/;
         };

METHODS
       add_facilities(facilities)
           Enable debug logging for specific facilities.  Each facility is the
           area of code to debug.  Facilities can be specified as a hash
           reference (the key names are used), an array reference, an array,
           or a comma-separated scalar string.

           If "all" is listed, then all debug facilities are enabled.  Higher
           priority informational messages that are suitable for logging in
           normal circumstances are available with an area of "info".  Some
           very verbose messages require the facility to be specifically
           enabled (see "would_log" below).

       log_message($level, $message)
       log_message($level, @message)
           Log a message at a specific level.  Levels are specified as
           strings: "warn", "error", "info", and "dbg".  The first element of
           the message must be prefixed with a facility name followed directly
           by a colon.

       dbg("facility: message")
           This is used for all low priority debugging messages.

       info("facility: message")
           This is used for informational messages indicating a normal, but
           significant, condition.  This should be infrequently called.  These
           messages are typically logged when SpamAssassin is run as a daemon.

       add(method => 'syslog', socket => $socket, facility => $facility)
           "socket" is the type the syslog ("unix" or "inet").  "facility" is
           the syslog facility (typically "mail").

       add(method => 'file', filename => $file)
           "filename" is the name of the log file.

       add(method => 'stderr')
           No options are needed for stderr logging, just don't close stderr
           first.

       remove(method)
           Remove a logging method.  Only the method name needs to be passed
           as a scalar.

       would_log($level, $facility)
           Returns 0 if a message at the given level and with the given
           facility would be logged.  Returns 1 if a message at a given level
           and facility would be logged normally.  Returns 2 if the facility
           was specifically enabled.

           The facility argument is optional.

       close_log()
           Close all logs.
