in reply to Log4perl log rotation in threadpool environment

Use Win32API::File to open the log file with FILE_SHARE_DELETE enabled (which allows renaming while the file handle is still open) and tell Log4perl to log to that file handle.

    Interesting! Wasn't aware ya could do that. Didnt have much luck using this due to the file handle it returned not being a typical file handle. Was able to get stuff to print, but not after I set the handle as a property of the object. Could probably get it to work if I reworked more of the code, but the post below seems to work well. Thanks for you input!

      You open a file with, for example, createFile(), and then get a "typical file handle" via OsFHandleOpen(). (Win32API::File)

      I should just submit a patch to make FILE_SHARE_DELETE be the default for Perl.
