object_log.module example

The Object Log module allows developers to store objects, arrays and other variables to a log table so that they may be inspected later. Multiple stored variables may be displayed side-by-side in the Object log under admin/reports.

The usage is similar to Devel module's dpm() or kprint_r() functions, but is particularly suited for debugging server-to-server requests, such as cron runs and web services, or for requests from anonymous and other unprivileged users.


When you reach a point in code at which you would like to store an object, call the object_log() function...

  object_log($label, $data);

...where $label is a string representing a name to give the object in the log, and $data is the variable you wish to store. If there is already a stored object with the same $label, that entry will be overwritten in the log.

Stored objects may be inspected by any user with the "access devel information" permission by going to admin/reports/object_log. While inspecting an object, a second object may be selected to display both objects side-by-side.


The Object Log module depends on Devel module:
