( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I've poked the Log::log4perl internals a bit before, but I don't have any of it memorized so this is mostly guesses but:

Anyway, my workaround is going to be to call get_logger in whichever scope I need to do logging.

Right, this is what you have to do here. Sounds like you understand why.

but I'm left wondering why doesn't Log::Log4perl see that the logger has gone out of scope in the work script and send the E-Mail?

For the same reason you can call ->get_logger without specifying the config again and get the expected logger object. Even though its went out of scope in your block, the instance of your logging object still exists in log4perl, so its not went out of scope everywhere yet. If you read through the l4p FAQ and review the email and buffering parts, it might might help explain whats going on? #How-can-I-configure-Log::Log4perl-to-send-me-email-if-something-happens?

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
