Daemon::Generic::Event(3) Generic daemon framework with Event.pm


use Daemon::Generic::Event;
@ISA = qw(Daemon::Generic::Event);
sub gd_preconfig {
# stuff


Daemon::Generic::Event is a subclass of Daemon::Generic that predefines some methods:
Setup a periodic callback to "gd_run_body()" if there is a "gd_run_body()". Call "Event::loop()".
Bind SIGHUP to call "gd_reconfig_event()". Bind SIGINT to call "gd_quit_event()".

To use Daemon::Generic::Event, you have to provide a "gd_preconfig()" method. It can be empty if you have a "gd_run_body()".

Set up your own events in "gd_preconfig()" and "gd_postconfig()".

If you have a "gd_run_body()" method, it will be called once per second or every "gd_interval()" seconds if you have a "gd_interval()" method. Unlike in Daemon::Generic::While1, "gd_run_body()" should not include a call to "sleep()".
