new( [$usage], [$help] )

Creates a new Lire::LrCommon instance. Initializes the usage string and the help message to $usage and $help.

set_usage( [$usage] )

set_help( [$help] )

set_section( [$name], [$label] )

add_option( [%args] )


import_log( [$converter], [$logfile] )

import_log invokes Lire::ImportJob and Lire::DlfConverterProcess. It uses &handle_logfile.

This means that in case the $logfile is compressed, it is decompressed to a file in $TMPDIR. In case the $logfile is read from a pipe or from STDIN, it is written to a file in $TMPDIR. So, if you're short on discspace, pass the logfile as an uncompressed file.

generate_report( [$converter], [$logfile] )

Generate a report from a $logfile, using $converter. Returns $reportfile. Uses Lire::ReportConfig::generate_report to do the real work.
