Passing a log handle to a module? Help needed with logging module and

Hi all,

So I have a slice of code which calls other python code. I have
started to take a real liking to the logging module, but I want to
extend this into the called python code. I have no idea how to pass
the handle from the calling code into the modules..

So basically here is what I do..

-- Main Program --

# Setup the logger..
import logging
log = logging.getLogg er("main")
log.setLevel(lo gging.DEBUG)
ch = logging.StreamH andler()
ch.setLevel(log ging.DEBUG)
formatter = logging.Formatt er("%(asctime) s %(name)s %(levelname)-8s
%(message)s",da tefmt='%d %b %Y %H:%M:%S')
ch.setFormatter (formatter)
log.addHandler( ch)

log.info(" ----> New run of started <---- ")

modules = []

# Add the mods directory so we can call the modules later
sys.path.insert ( 0, os.getcwd() + "/mods" )

for metric in glob.glob("mods/*.py"):
# Now lets start working on the individual metrics
module_name, ext = os.path.splitex t(os.path.basen ame(metric))
log.debug( "Attempting to import %s" % module_name )

module = __import__(modu le_name)
modules.append( module )
log.info( "Successful l import of %s" % module_name )
except ImportError , e:
log.error( "Failed import of %s - %s" % ( module_name, e) )

for module in modules:
module.main( )


---- Called module -----

def main():
print "Yep were in"

if __name__ == '__main__':

Now what I want to do is simple..
I want to change the called module so that it looks something like

---- Called module -----

def main( logging_handle= None ):
print "Yep were in"

if logging_handle:
log=logging.han dle

( SOME WAY TO CHANGE THE getLogger name to Module )

log.debug( "Hey it works..")
def setUpLog():
# Setup the logger..
import logging
log = logging.getLogg er("module")
log.setLevel(lo gging.DEBUG)
ch = logging.StreamH andler()
ch.setLevel(log ging.DEBUG)
formatter = logging.Formatt er("%(asctime) s %(name)s
%(levelname)-8s %(message)s",da tefmt='%d %b %Y % H:%M:%S')
ch.setFormatter (formatter)
log.addHandler( ch)
return log

if __name__ == '__main__':


But I can't figure out how to pass the d$!@# logging handle to the
called module - much less change the getLogger name to "module". Can
someone please help me with this? I know I must be doing something
Thanks so much!!

I'm sorry, but what have you tried? It seems like it should be a simple
matter of calling module.main(log ).
much less change the getLogger name to "module".

Why do you want to do this?

Hola, pythonisas: The documentation for the logging module is good, but a bit obscure. In particular, there seems to be a lot of action at a distance. The fact that getLogger() can actually be a call to Logger.__init__(), which is mentioned in para 6.29.1, also bears stressing on 6.29. I grasp _why_ you'd implement it that way, but I may not...
