Get messages to users and logs. Log::Report combines three tasks
which are closely related in one:
. logging (like Log::Log4Perl and syslog), and
. exceptions (like error and info), with
. translations (like gettext and Locale::TextDomain)
You **do not need** to use this module for all three reasons: pick what
you need now, maybe extend the usage later.
To enable translations, you need to install "Log::Report::Lexicon"
## Development → Release
Important to know, is that I use an extension on POD to write the manuals.
The "raw" unprocessed version is visible on GitHub. It will run without
problems, but does not contain manual-pages.
Releases to CPAN are different: "raw" documentation gets removed from
the code and translated into real POD and clean HTML. This reformatting
is implemented with the OODoc distribution (A name I chose before OpenOffice
existed, sorry for the confusion)
Clone from github for the "raw" version. For instance, when you want
to contribute a new feature.
On github, you can find the processed version for each release. But the
better source is CPAN; to get it installed simply run:
cpan -i Log::Report
When you want to contribute to this module, you do not need to provide
a perfect patch... actually: it is nearly impossible to create a patch
which I will merge without modification. Usually, I need to adapt the
style of code and documentation to my own strict rules.
When you submit an extension, please contribute a set with
2. code documentation
3. regression tests in t/
