Apache::Logfile on Winnt?by nop (Hermit)
|on Feb 11, 2003 at 03:04 UTC||Need Help??|
nop has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hi, folks. Please pardon a mod_perl apache newbie question:
I need a custom log for certain data under Apache.
My limited mod_perl knowledge is coming from
The Mod Perl Developers Cookbook.
The cookbook strongly recommends Apache:Logfile:
You could try doing this yourself, but the complexities of opening and closing logfiles in a multi-process Apache server are, shall we say, difficult. Instead, using the CPAN module Apache::Logfile is quite simple... (p. 552)Sadly, I'm using a Windows machine for development (ack) and there seems to be no ppm for it yet (indigo or activestate). Can anyone offer advice? Did I miss a ppm somewhere? Is there a good substitute? I'm taking the cookbook's warning, knowing I don't know enough to do it right myself.
