Looking for a simple multiprocess-enabled logging moduleby bronto (Priest)
|on Dec 20, 2004 at 15:17 UTC||Need Help??|
bronto has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am in charge of rewriting in Perl a bash-application; my Perl program would fork N children to do the same job on different partitions of input data. Each child would write on the same log file, and obviously in a safe manner.
Log::Log4perl is so feature-rich and flexible that, paradoxically, seems a bit overkill for what I am going to do; I'd prefer a simpler module, if at all possible.
So, before going through L::L4p, I would like to know if there is any simpler, multiprocess-enabled logging module. A search on cpan returns a lot of modules (677 at the moment I am writing this), that are far too much to examine one-by-one; I tried anyway, but for many of them the documentation doesn't tell about the multiprocessing support, and I should go for the source...
Any good advice?
Thanks in advance

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.
