Log::Message::Config - Configuration options for Log::Message


# This module is implicitly used by Log::Message to create a config
# which it uses to log messages.
# For the options you can pass, see the C<Log::Message new()> method.

# Below is a sample of a config file you could use

# comments are denoted by a single '#'
# use a shared stack, or have a private instance?
# if none provided, set to '0',
private = 1

# do not be verbose
verbose = 0

# default tag to set on new items
# if none provided, set to 'NONE'
tag = SOME TAG

# default level to handle items
# if none provided, set to 'log'
level = carp

# extra files to include
# if none provided, no files are auto included
include =
include = ../my/other/

# automatically delete items
# when you retrieve them from the stack?
# if none provided, set to '0'
remove = 1

# retrieve errors in chronological order, or not?
# if none provided, set to '1'
chrono = 0


Log::Message::Config provides a standardized config object for Log::Message objects.

It can either read options as perl arguments, or as a config file. See the Log::Message manpage for more information about what arguments are valid, and see the Synopsis for an example config file you can use
