Subject: LOG_EMERG unusable
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 803b
It seems LOG_EMERG is unusable with Sys::Syslog. Passing LOG_EMERG as the first argument ($priority) to Sys::Syslog::syslog() causes perl to croak. sys/syslog.ph: eval 'sub LOG_EMERG () {0;}' unless defined(&LOG_EMERG); Syslog.pm: 199 sub syslog { 200 my $priority = shift; 201 my $mask = shift; 202 my ($message, $buf); 203 my (@words, $num, $numpri, $numfac, $sum); 204 my $failed = undef; 205 my $fail_time = undef; 206 my $error = $!; 207 208 my $facility = $facility; # may need to change temporarily. 209 210 croak "syslog: expecting argument \$priority" unless defined $priority; 211 croak "syslog: expecting argument \$format" unless defined $mask; 212 Line 210 croaks since $priority == 0 when LOG_EMERG is passed.

I can't reproduce your problem, LOG_EMERG works for me. The following one-liner $ perl -wMSys::Syslog=:standard,:macros -e 'openlog("perl", "pid,ndelay", "local0"); syslog(LOG_EMERG, "test syslog message local0/emerg")' produces this message in my /var/log/syslog under Linux: Jul 10 06:54:13 localhost perl[2050]: test syslog message local0/emerg which is what I expect.

Shouldn't croak if LOG_EMERG is passed because its value is zero, which is defined. Did you pass the :macros import option to Sys::Sylog? What is your OS, Perl and Sys::Syslog version? -- Sébastien Aperghis-Tramoni Close the world, txEn eht nepO.

D'oh - this system had an older version of Sys::Syslog installed, but when I checked 0.16 before reporting this bug, I overlooked the 'defined' that appeared. :-) Sorry for the bother.

No problem. Closing the ticket. -- Sébastien Aperghis-Tramoni Close the world, txEn eht nepO.
