- How to log the output of Mime::Lite ?

I have this simple Mime::Lite script quoted below.
It works alright.
But I would like to trace the result of the output.
set -x in ksh
or anything else similar.
Or some logging?
What should I do and where should I put it?
my $from_address = j...@yahoo.com';
my $to_address = 'sm...@yahoo.com';
my $mail_host = 'mailhost.domain.com';
### Adjust subject and body message
my $subject = 'A message with 2 parts ...';
my $message_body = "Here's the attachment file(s) you wanted";
### Create the multipart container
$msg = MIME::Lite->new (
From => $from_address,
To => $to_address,
Subject => $subject,
) or die "Error creating multipart container: $!\n";
### Add the text message part
Type => 'TEXT',
Data => $message_body
) or die "Error adding the text message part: $!\n";
### Add the ZIP file
Type => 'application/zip',
Path => $my_file_zip,
Filename => $your_file_zip,
Disposition => 'attachment'
) or die "Error adding $file_zip: $!\n";
### Send the Message
MIME::Lite->send('smtp', $mail_host, Timeout=>60);
Re: How to log the output of Mime::Lite ?
At the beginning of your script:
open LOG, ">>/path/to/logfile" or die "Can't open log: $!";
Then, throughout your script, whenever you want to write something to the
print LOG "Whatever you want to put in the logfile";
And at the end of the script:
close LOG or die "Can't close log: $!";
