  =head1 Description
  C<Apache::Log> provides the Perl API for Apache logging methods.
  =head1 Constants
  The following constants (sorted from the most severe level to the
  least severe) are used in logging methods to specify the log level at
  which the message should be logged:
  =item * C<Apache::LOG_EMERG>
  =item * C<Apache::LOG_ALERT>
  =item * C<Apache::LOG_CRIT>
  =item * C<Apache::LOG_ERR>
  =item * C<Apache::LOG_WARNING>
  =item * C<Apache::LOG_NOTICE>
  =item * C<Apache::LOG_INFO>
  =item * C<Apache::LOG_DEBUG>
  For example if the current C<LogLevel> is set to I<warning>, only
  messages with log level of the level I<warning> or higher (I<err>,
  I<crit>, I<elert> and I<emerg>) will be logged. Therefore this:
    $r->log_rerror(Apache::LOG_MARK, Apache::LOG_WARNING,
                   APR::ENOTIME, "warning!");
  will log the message, but this one won't:
    $r->log_rerror(Apache::LOG_MARK, Apache::LOG_INFO,
                   APR::ENOTIME, "just an info");
  It will be logged only if the server log level is set to I<info> or
  I<debug>. (either in the configuration file or using the
  C<$s-E<gt>loglevel()> method.)
  Other constants:
  =item * C<Apache::LOG_LEVELMASK>
  used to mask off the level value, to make sure that the log level's
  value is within the proper bits range. e.g.:
   $loglevel &= LOG_LEVELMASK;
  =item * C<Apache::LOG_TOCLIENT>
  used to give content handlers the option of including the error text
  in the C<ErrorDocument> sent back to the client. When
  C<Apache::LOG_TOCLIENT> is passed to C<log_rerror()> the error message
  will be saved in the C<$r>'s notes table, keyed to the string
  I<"error-notes">, if and only if the severity level of the message is
  C<Apache::LOG_WARNING> or greater and there are no other
  I<"error-notes"> entry already set in the request record's notes
  table. Once the I<"error-notes"> entry is set, it is up to the content
  handler to determine whether this text should be send back to the
  client.  For example:
    $r->log_rerror(Apache::LOG_MARK, Apache::LOG_ERR|Apache::LOG_TOCLIENT,
                   APR::ENOTIME, "request log_rerror");
  now the log message can be retrieved via:
  Remember that client generated text streams sent back to the client
  MUST be escaped to prevent CSS attacks.
  =item * C<Apache::LOG_STARTUP>
  is set only during the startup.
  =head1 Server Logging Methods
  =head2 C<$s-E<gt>log_error()>
  just logs the supplied message. For example:
    $s->log_error("running low on memory");
  =head2 C<$s-E<gt>log_serror()>
    log_serror($file, $line, $level, $status, @message);
   * $file    The file in which this function is called
   * $line    The line number on which this function is called
   * $level   The level of this error message
   * $status  The status code from the previous command
   * @message The log message
  This function provides a fine control of when the message is logged,
  gives an access to built-in status codes.
  For example:
    $s->log_serror(Apache::LOG_MARK, Apache::LOG_ERR,
                   0, "log_serror logging at err level");
    $s->log_serror(Apache::LOG_MARK, Apache::LOG_DEBUG,
                   APR::ENOTIME, "debug print");
  =head2 C<$s-E<gt>log()>
    my $slog = $s->log;
  returns a handle which can be used to log messages of different
  level. See the next entry.
  =head2 emerg(), alert(), crit(), error(), warn(), notice(), info(), debug()
  after getting the log handle with C<$s-E<gt>log>, use these methods to
  control when messages should be logged.
  For example:
    my $slog = $s->log;
    $slog->debug("just ", "some debug info");
  =head1 Request Logging Methods
  =head2 C<$r-E<gt>log_error()>
  logs the supplied message (similar to C<$s-E<gt>log_error>). For
    $r->log_error("the request is about to end");
  the same as C<$s-E<gt>log_error>.
  =head2 C<$r-E<gt>log_rerror()>
    log_rerror($file, $line, $level, $status, @message);
  same as C<$s-E<gt>log_rerror>. For example:
    $s->log_rerror(Apache::LOG_MARK, Apache::LOG_ERR,
                   0, "log_rerror logging at err level");
    $s->log_rerror(Apache::LOG_MARK, Apache::LOG_DEBUG,
                   APR::ENOTIME, "debug print");
  =head2 C<$r-E<gt>log()>
    my $rlog = $r->log;
  Similar to C<$s-E<gt>log()>
  =head2 emerg(), alert(), crit(), error(), warn(), notice(), info(), debug()
  Similar to the server's log functions with the same names.
  For example:
    $rlog->debug("just ", "some debug info");
  =head1 General Functions
  =head2 C<Apache::LOG_MARK()>
    my($file, $line) = Apache::LOG_MARK();
  Though looking like a constant, this is a function, which returns a
  list of two items: C<(__FILE__, __LINE__)>, i.e. the file and the line
  where the function was called from.
  =head1 Aliases
  =head2 C<$s-E<gt>warn()>
  C<$s-E<gt>warn()> is an alias to C<$s-E<gt>log-E<gt>warn()>.
  For example:
    $s->warn('routine server warning');
  =head2 C<Apache-E<gt>warn()>
  C<Apache-E<gt>warn()> is an alias to C<$s-E<gt>log-E<gt>warn()>.
