       Net::Jabber::Log - Jabber Log Module


         Net::Jabber::Log is a companion to the Net::Jabber module.
         It provides the user a simple interface to set and retrieve all
         parts of a Jabber Log.


         To initialize the Log with a Jabber <log/> you must pass it the
         XML::Parser Tree array.  For example:

           my $log = new Net::Jabber::Log(@tree);

         There has been a change from the old way of handling the callbacks.
         You no longer have to do the above, a Net::Jabber::Log object is passed
         to the callback function for the log:

           use Net::Jabber;

           sub log {
             my ($Log) = @_;

         You now have access to all of the retrieval functions available.

         To create a new log to send to the server:

           use Net::Jabber;

           $Log = new Net::Jabber::Log();

         Now you can call the creation functions below to populate the tag before
         sending it.

         For more information about the array format being passed to the CallBack
         please read the Net::Jabber::Client documentation.

   Retrieval functions
           $from       = $Log->GetFrom();
           $fromJID    = $Log->GetFrom("jid");
           $type       = $Log->GetType();
           $data       = $Log->GetData();

           $str        = $Log->GetXML();
           @log        = $Log->GetTree();

   Creation functions
                        data=>"The moon is full... I can't run anymore.");
           $Log->SetData("I can't find a config file.  Using defaults.");

   Test functions
           $test = $Log->DefinedFrom();
           $test = $Log->DefinedType();


   Retrieval functions
         GetFrom()      -  returns either a string with the Jabber Identifier,
         GetFrom("jid")    or a Net::Jabber::JID object for the person who
                           sent the <log/>.  To get the JID object set
                           the string to "jid", otherwise leave blank for the
                           text string.

         GetType() - returns a string with the type <log/> this is.

         GetData() - returns a string with the cdata of the <log/>.

         GetXML() - returns the XML string that represents the <log/>.
                    This is used by the Send() function in to send
                    this object as a Jabber Log.

         GetTree() - returns an array that contains the <log/> tag
                     in XML::Parser Tree format.

   Creation functions
         SetLog(from=>string|JID, - set multiple fields in the <log/>
                type=>string,       at one time.  This is a cumulative
                data=>string)       and over writing action.  If you set
                                    the "from" attribute twice, the second
                                    setting is what is used.  If you set
                                    the type, and then set the data
                                    then both will be in the <log/>
                                    tag.  For valid settings read the
                                    specific Set functions below.

         SetFrom(string) - sets the from attribute.  You can either pass a string
         SetFrom(JID)      or a JID object.  They must be valid Jabber
                           Identifiers or the server will return an error log.
                           (ie. Bob, etc...)

         SetType(string) - sets the type attribute.  Valid settings are:

                           notice     general logging
                           warn       warning
                           alert      critical error (can still run but not
                           error      fatal error (cannot run anymore)

         SetData(string) - sets the cdata of the <log/>.

   Test functions
         DefinedFrom() - returns 1 if the from attribute is defined in the
                         <log/>, 0 otherwise.

         DefinedType() - returns 1 if the type attribute is defined in the
                         <log/>, 0 otherwise.
