WEBrick::AccessLog

AccessLog provides logging to various files in various formats.

Multiple logs may be written to at the same time:

access_log = [
  [$stderr, WEBrick::AccessLog::COMMON_LOG_FORMAT],
  [$stderr, WEBrick::AccessLog::REFERER_LOG_FORMAT],
]

server = WEBrick::HTTPServer.new :AccessLog => access_log

Custom log formats may be defined. WEBrick::AccessLog provides a subset of the formatting from Apache’s mod_log_config httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/mod_log_config.html#formats. See AccessLog::setup_params for a list of supported options
