NAME ^

 Daemon::Generic::Event - Generic daemon framework with Event.pm

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Daemon::Generic::Event;

 @ISA = qw(Daemon::Generic::Event);

 sub gd_preconfig {
        # stuff
 }

DESCRIPTION ^

Daemon::Generic::Event is a subclass of Daemon::Generic that predefines some methods:

gd_run()

Setup a periodic callback to gd_run_body() if there is a gd_run_body(). Call Event::loop().

gd_setup_signals()

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().
