Additional logging handlers.
This package provides additional loghandlers for use with the Python
Currently, only one additional logging handler is provided, which
manages log file rotation based on Cron-like settings. So you can tell
to rotate the logs at every day, week, month, or similar. Different to
logging.handlers.TimedRotatingFileHandler you can expect the
rotation to happen at beginning of intervals.
For instance, if you start daily logging with
logging.handlers.TimedRotatingFileHandler at 11:12h, a rollover will
happen at 11:12h on the next day. With
ulif.loghandlers.DatedRotatingFileHandler the rollover will instead
happen at midnight, regardless of when you started the logging.
Furthermore you can let the number of backup files increase indefinitely by passing backupCount = -1.
Please note, that this package is still in a very early state and changes, also to the API, are likely to happen in near future.
Comments and patches are welcome. Please send these to uli at gnufix dot de.

backupCount was set to
