Appender::Socket::UNIXUser Contributed Perl DocumentaAppender::Socket::UNIX(3)

NAME
       Log::Log4perl::Appender::Socket::UNIX- Log to a Unix Domain Socket

SYNOPSIS
	       use Log::Log4perl::Appender::Socket::UNIX;

	       my $appender = Log::Log4perl::Appender::Socket::UNIX->new(
		       Socket => '/var/tmp/myprogram.sock'
	       );

	       $appender->log(message => "Log me\n");

DESCRIPTION
       This is a simple	appender for writing to	a unix domain socket. It
       relies on Socket	and only logs to an existing socket - ie. very useful
       to always log debug streams to the socket.

       The appender tries to stream to a socket. The socket in questions is
       beeing created by the client who	wants to listen, once created the
       messages	are coming thru.

EXAMPLE
       Write a client quickly using the	Socket module:

	       use Socket;

	       my $s = "/var/tmp/myprogram.sock";

	       unlink($s) or die("Failed to unlin socket - check permissions.\n");

	       # be sure to set	a correct umask	so that	the appender is	allowed	to stream to:
	       # umask(000);

	       socket(my $socket, PF_UNIX, SOCK_DGRAM, 0);
	       bind($socket, sockaddr_un($s));

	       while (1) {
		       while ($line = <$socket>) {
			       print $line;
		       }
	       }
