       Log::Log4perl::Appender::TestBuffer - Appender class for testing


         use Log::Log4perl::Appender::TestBuffer;

         my $appender = Log::Log4perl::Appender::TestBuffer->new(
             name      => 'mybuffer',

             # Append to the buffer
             level =  > 'alert',
             message => "I'm searching the city for sci-fi wasabi\n"

             # Retrieve the result
         my $result = $appender->buffer();

             # Clear the buffer to the empty string


       This class is used for internal testing of "Log::Log4perl". It is a "Log::Dispatch"-style
       appender, which writes to a buffer in memory, from where actual results can be easily
       retrieved later to compare with expected results.

       Every buffer created is stored in an internal global array, and can later be referenced by

           my $app = Log::Log4perl::Appender::TestBuffer->by_name("mybuffer");

       retrieves the appender object of a previously created buffer "mybuffer".  To reset this
       global array and have it forget all of the previously created testbuffer appenders
       (external references to those appenders nonwithstanding), use
