( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have script that runs as a damon that writes all data from a tcp socket to a file. I need to close and reopen a new file every day without restarting the script. Here is what I have so far and it works but it does not close and reopen a new file at the time listed.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use IO::Socket; use MIME::Lite; use Time::Out qw(timeout); $SIG{PIPE} = "IGNORE"; $| = 1; my $nb_secs = 10; my $buf = ""; my $sock = new IO::Socket::INET (PeerAddr => '192.168.173.9', PeerPort => 4002, Proto => 'tcp', Type => SOCK_STREAM, ); die "cannot open socket" unless ($sock); my ($sec,$min,$hour,$mday,$mon,$year,$wday,$yday,$isdst) = localtime(t +ime); my $hrmin = sprintf ("%02d%02d",$hour,$min); my $ymd = sprintf("%04d%02d%02d%02d%02d%02d",$year+1900,$mon+1,$mday,$ +hour,$min,$sec); my $filename = "/tmp/$ymd.txt"; print $filename, "\n"; open FILE, ">$filename" || die("Couldn't open file"); while (my $line = <$sock>) { # Close existing file and reopen a new one at midnight. if($hrmin == 1114) { sleep 1; close FILE; my $ymd = sprintf("%04d%02d%02d%02d%02d%02d",$year+1900,$mon+1,$md +ay,$hour,$min,$sec); my $filename = "/tmp/$ymd.txt"; print $filename, "\n"; open FILE, ">$filename" || die("Couldn't open file"); } if ($line =~ m/^(ALARM: )/) { ....... }; #Print current line to open file. print FILE $line; } sleep 10; # allow sometime to exit close FILE;
