Hello

I am trying to setup a logging using log4perl where the filename can be set dynamically. Of course I am having troubles. Here is my current code:

my $logFile="$logDir/$logfileName"; $logConf = q( log4perl.category.Foo.Bar = INFO, Logfile, Screen log4perl.appender.Logfile = log::Log4perl::Appender::File log4perl.appender.Logfile.filename = logs/frank.txt log4perl.appender.Logfile.layout = Log::Log4perl::Layou +t::PatternLayout log4perl.appender.Logfile.layout.ConversionPattern = %d + %-25M %X{logref} %p %m %n log4perl.appender.Screen = Log::Log4perl::Appende +r::Screen log4perl.appender.Screen.stderr = 0 log4perl.appender.Screen.layout = Log::Log4perl::Layout:: +SimpleLayout ); Log::Log4perl->init(\$logConf);

The problem is that I don't want each file name to be named "logs/frank.txt". I would rather have something like:

logs/frank.<date>.txt

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Frank
