This shows no errors but instead of writing the day of the week into log
file it writes “0”. I’m not sure what “localtime” is. Is it the variable
containing the local time? Something like:
my $localtime = my $now = RT::Date->new($RT::SystemUser);
Or should I write there just “localhost”? None of this seem to work.
localtime() is a standard perl function that returns the time according to
the local timezone broken down into an array of fields: sec, min, hour,
day etc. See: ‘perldoc -f localtime’ for the full story. There’s also
gmtime() which produces the UTC time in the same format.
Either of those two functions takes an optional argument which is a
timestamp expressed as ‘seconds since the epoch’ a.k.a. unix time –
without an argument they default to the current time.
If you just want to get a timestamp on your log records, then there’s
potentially a much simpler method you could use. Instead of logging
to a file, just use the Unix syslog instead: that will automatically
tag each line with a timestamp. Something like:
Set($LogToSyslog , ‘debug’);
(although this seems to be the default already).
