Nicola, Nice module--combines a bunch of functionality that I keep having to reimplment. Thanks! I had a few suggestions that stem from an error I ran into. I have a script that I want to initialize and report any errors before daemonizing. During initialization, I need to drop privileges in order to open a file as nobody (all before I want to call init_server). Because PIDPATH is defined before I drop privilege and _open_pid_file is called after, the script blows up at 'print $fh $$;'. (I'm not sure why it doesn't die in the IO::File->new, but it doesn't) Anyway, moving PIDPATH into _getpidfilename would solve the problem. For reference, I have attached a test file that dies during init_server (nothing is written to the log).
