perl-log-any 1.707 Bringing loggers and listeners together

Log::Any provides a standard log production API for modules. Log::Any::Adapter allows applications to choose the mechanism for log consumption, whether screen, file or another logging mechanism like Log::Dispatch or Log::Log4perl.

A CPAN module uses Log::Any to get a log producer object. An application, in turn, may choose one or more logging mechanisms via Log::Any::Adapter, or none at all.

Log::Any has a very tiny footprint and no dependencies beyond Perl itself, which makes it appropriate for even small CPAN modules to use. It defaults to null logging activity, so a module can safely log without worrying about whether the application has chosen (or will ever choose) a logging mechanism.
