Constructor & Destructor Documentation

log4tango::FileAppender::FileAppender (const std::string & name, const std::string & fileName, bool append = true, mode_t mode = 00644)

Constructs a FileAppender.

Parameters

name the name of the Appender.
fileName the name of the file to which the Appender has to log.
append whether the Appender has to truncate the file or just append to it if it already exists. Defaults to 'true'.
mode file mode to open the logfile with. Defaults to 00644.

log4tango::FileAppender::FileAppender (const std::string & name, int fd)

Constructs a FileAppender to an already open file descriptor.

Parameters

name the name of the Appender.
fd the file descriptor to which the Appender has to log.

log4tango::FileAppender::~FileAppender () [virtual]

Destructor.

Member Function Documentation

int log4tango::FileAppender::_append (const LoggingEvent & event) [protected], [virtual]

Log in Appender specific way. Subclasses of Appender should implement this method to perform actual logging.

Parameters

event The LoggingEvent to log.

Implements log4tango::Appender.

Reimplemented in log4tango::RollingFileAppender.

void log4tango::FileAppender::close (void) [virtual]

Closes the logfile.

Implements log4tango::Appender.

bool log4tango::FileAppender::get_append (void) const [virtual]

Gets the value of the 'append' option.

mode_t log4tango::FileAppender::get_mode (void) const [virtual]

Gets the file open mode.

bool log4tango::FileAppender::is_valid (void) const [virtual]

Check if the appender is valid.

Returns

true if the appender is valid, false otherwise.

Reimplemented from log4tango::Appender.

bool log4tango::FileAppender::reopen (void) [virtual]

Reopens the logfile. This can be useful for logfiles that are rotated externally, e.g. by logrotate. This method is a NOOP for FileAppenders that have been constructed with a file descriptor.

Returns

true if the reopen succeeded.

Reimplemented from log4tango::Appender.

void log4tango::FileAppender::set_append (bool append) [virtual]

Sets the append vs truncate flag. NB. currently the FileAppender opens the logfile in the constructor. Therefore this method is too late to influence the first file opening. We'll need something similar to log4j's activateOptions().

Parameters

append false to truncate, true to append

void log4tango::FileAppender::set_mode (mode_t mode) [virtual]

Sets the file open mode.
