Smart::Comments might meet your needs as stated more closely, but have a look at Log::Log4perl, it's very nice. Among other things, you can change logging level for individual parts of you system, without having to restart the system.

    I'd also go for Log::Log4perl. As you can see, leaving log statements in production code with logging disabled makes close to no impact on overall performance (it's actually faster in this benchmark :). Using the init_and_watch option, you can tune the log levels while the program is running (as noted by stiller). That is a property I value very much when arriving at a customer site and the system's symptoms are hard to interpret. Simply increase the log level for individual parts of the system, and see how it actually runs.
    $ /usr/bin/perl Rate fib_no_log fib_log_1 fib_no_log 997050/s -- -3% fib_log_1 1025993/s 3% --
    No matter how great and destructive your problems may seem now, remember, you've probably only seen the tip of them. [1]

[Corion]: Last day at $work before 3 weeks of vacation (well, not that I'd be really travelling, but no-work-time ;) )
[robby_dobby]: marto: yeah, I'd eventually visit Glasgow some day - just to visit the home town of GHC :-)
[robby_dobby]: Corion: Oh, that's awesome! Your timing is perfect enough to see all hell break loose when you get back at work :P
[marto]: well, let me know in advance, I'll buy you a pint :)
[Corion]: robby_dobby: No, I'm returning in the second workweek of January. The main hectic parts are in the first days after the start of the new year
[robby_dobby]: marto: and, I'm not sure I'd be around here long enough for YAPC::EU
[marto]: Corion nice, what are you plans for Christmas?
[robby_dobby]: Corion: Nice, you just won't be around to deal with the mess - enjoy your vacation :-)
[robby_dobby]: marto: Sure, will do. Thanks!
[Corion]: marto: No great plans - I'll meet with my sister, my brother and my mother, but that's all :)
