DESCRIPTION

Syslog::Parse is a parser that extracts information from every line in /var/log/syslog. Creates two objects of the kind Supply: one (simply called .supply that returns the raw lines, another, .parsed, which returns a structure with the following keys:

day # Day in the month
month # TLA of month
hour # String with hour
hostname # Hostname that produced it
actor # Who produced the message log
pid # Sometimes, it goes with a PID
message # Another data structure, with key message (the whole message) and
        # user if one has been dentified

PLATFORMS

It works on platforms that use /var/log/syslog as a syslog file, with the same format. All Debian seem to be that way.

If you don't have that platform, you can still use the grammars on files with that format.
