in reply to Logging for System Admin Scripts

Hi Posthumous,

I was about to recommend Log::Log4Perl, but then thought it might be prudent to see what ActiveState's PPM Build Status Page had to say about it. I scrolled all the way down to Log::Log4Perl, and saw that it passed most of the build tests but one, and thought it might be of value to you. But then I scrolled back up and saw the column heading for the platform for the single failure was Windows :(

I'd recommend browsing around CPAN for "log" to see what you find that looks to fill your purposes, and then check the ActiveState's PPM Build Status Page for that module.

    Log4perl really is worth doing, esp. if you want to never have to worry about your logging system running out of capabilities to meet new requirements as they present themselves.

    I've never done the install myself, but the Log::Log4perl author provides instructions in his FAQ for getting the module working on windows.

      Thanks to all for helping me shorten my search from a very long list of modules to two.


      Good news -- the Log4Perl module is in the Activestate repository.

      I'm off to do some installs and experimenting.
