Private subclass of LineIterator that
  • Selects log records that match the requested begin time and levels.
  • reasembles divided records into a single log record
  • splits the log record into fields

ObjectMethod hasNext() → $boolean

Reads records, reassembling them and skipping until a record qualifies per the requested time and levels.

The next matching record is parsed and saved into an instance variable until requested.

Returns true if a cached record is available.

ObjectMethod snoopNext() → $hashref

Returns a hash of the fields in the next available record without moving the record pointer. (If the file has not yet been read, the hasNext() method is called, which will read the file until it finds a matching record.

ObjectMethod next() → \$hash or @array

Returns a hash, or an array of the fields in the next available record depending on the API version.

PrivateMethod formatData($this) → ( $hashRef, @array )

Used by the EventIterator to assemble the read log record into a hash for the Version 1 interface, or the array returned for the original Version 0 interface.
