Metrics::Any::Adapter(User Contributed Perl DocumentatMetrics::Any::Adapter(3)

       "Metrics::Any::Adapter" - set the "Metrics::Any"	adapter	for the

       In a program or top-level program-like module:

	  use Metrics::Any::Adapter 'Prometheus';

       The "use" statement which loads this module sets	the adapter module for
       Metrics::Any to report metrics generated	by an modules the program

       The first value passed should be	a string giving	the name of an adapter
       module, which will be expected under the
       "Metrics::Any::Adapter::"-prefix.  This module will be loaded and set
       as the adapter to use. Any additional arguments will be passed to the
       constructor of the adapter instance.

	  use Metrics::Any::Adapter Custom => "another arg";

	  # implies
	  $adapter = Metrics::Any::Adapter::Custom->new( "another arg" );

       Since version 0.04.

       Sets the	default	adapter	type to	use if the program has not otherwise
       requested one.

       Normally	this is	set to "Null", which loads
       Metrics::Any::Adapter::Null.  By	overriding this	to a different value,
       a default adapter can be	loaded without modifying the program. This may
       be useful for example, when running unit	tests:

	  $ METRICS_ANY_ADAPTER=Stderr ./Build test

       Additional arguments can	be specified after a colon, separated by
       commas or equals	signs.

	  $ METRICS_ANY_ADAPTER=File:path=metrics.log ./

       Note that if a program requests a specific adapter that will override
       this variable.

       A limited attempt is made at supporting nested arguments	wrapped	in
       square brackets,	to allow basic operation of the
       Metrics::Any::Adapter::Tee adapter via this variable to itself pass
       arguments into child adapters:

	  $ METRICS_ANY_ADAPTER=Tee:Prometheus,[File:path=metrics.log] perl ...

       This should be considered a best-effort scenario	useful for short-term
       testing and debugging. For more complex requirements in your script or
       program,	it is better to	use the	import arguments directly as then any
       perl data structures can	be passed around.
