Parsing Process Log files - looking for Perl Modules

    I am looking for Perl Modules which can help me parse the log files.

    I have monitoring framework which kind of scrapes Web Applications(sites). Visits web sites, fills the login form, clicks login button, verifies the welcome page content.

    This generates the log files - logs details of each step.. something like: Monitoring site started, got the login form, filled the login form, clicked on the form, got the response, authentication failed etc..etc


    I would like to parse the log files for [1] check the consistency of each block (I am calling block for one monitoring instance log). [2] What times failures (authentication failures etc) etc etc.


    Please help by suggesting Text Parsing modules/or other Open source tools.

    thank you,

    Unfortunately you are very vague as to the format of your log files.
    If they are in a customary format then there is a fair chance that you
    may find a ready-made module on CPAN.

    If they are not then you may be able to modifiy a module for your needs
    or at the very least learn how other people did it and copy their
    approach.
