The underlying library is rather loud in its error and warning messages, potentially emitting a lot of impure terminal clutter even on some otherwise-pure functions. Very helpfully, it also provides a mechanism for integrating the logs with whatever framework is in place for the larger project; that mechanism can be leveraged to cache the logs in memory until specifically asked for, at which point they can be packaged into Haskell types. Some of the immediacy—and therefore user ability to match note to source—is unfortunately lost, but the apparent purity is worth it.





Most functions have been re-contextulized as being provided through a LibcdioLogger instance, but the interface is otherwise unchanged.


data LogEntry #

An unstructured message emitted from the library to let the user know what's going on behind the scenes.

Message interaction

putLog :: LogEntry -> IO () #

Append a message to the logs.

readLog :: IO [LogEntry] #

Retrieve all messages currently in the log for further processing. Note that this retains the contents of the log for future calls; to remove them, a separate call to clearLog must be made.

>>> setupLogger
>>> putLog $ LogEntry LogWarn "Testing log reading"
>>> readLog
[LogEntry LogWarn "Testing log reading"]
>>> readLog
[LogEntry LogWarn "Testing log reading"]
>>> clearLog
>>> readLog

clearLog :: IO () #

Empty all messages currently in the log. There is no way to selectively remove only some messages; if that is desired, call readLog first:

>>> setupLogger
>>> msgs <- readLog
>>> clearLog
>>> mapM_ putLog $ filter p msgs


logCutoff :: IO LogLevel #

Check the current minimum severity which will be recorded in the logs.

See setLogCutoff.

setLogCutoff :: LogLevel -> IO () #

Set the minimum severity required for a message to be recorded in the logs.

See logCutoff.

setupLogger :: IO () #

Initialize the log-management backend to use the mechanisms provided by this library instead of just printing to standard output. While this will usually be taken care of automatically, it may still be necessary to call this explicitly if messages are being recorded before any disc session is opened.
