in thread combine logentries with Log::log4perl

If you're writing a multi-platform program, do you invest in learning about and using all of the various logging systems for each environment, or do you log with a single format into a single location?

    I'd write a logging module that sends things to syslog, event-log or a old-fashioned text-log file depending on the OS.

    Think of DBI-for-logging, with DBD-like modules for each OS.

There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
