I'm trying to read windows EventLog:
$evHandle->Read(EVENTLOG_FORWARDS_READ|EVENTLOG_SEQUENTIAL_READ,0,$hr) ||die; use Data::Dumper;say Dumper($hr); Win32::EventLog::GetMessageText($hr);# Try to decode the # message text? print "Computer:".$hr->{Computer}." Source:".$hr->{Source}"; print " TS:".scalar(gmtime($hr->{TimeGenerated})); print " Category:".$hr->{Category}; print " EventType:".$hr->{EventType}." TXT:".$hr->{Message};
and for some messages this works fine, but some come up empty: "System Computer:LUBSS056 Source:Server Agents TS:Thu Apr 10 14:00:44 2008 Category:1 EventType:4 TXT:."

As far as I know, this might happen if I'm reading the EventLog remotely, and I don't have access to EventLog decoding dlls on my machine, but since I'm reading locally, I believe this shouldn't happen.

In reply to Win32::EventLog: how to convert EventLog hash to text by Eyck

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • 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:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • 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).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
