in reply to combine logentries with Log::log4perl

Could you provide us with a bit more information?

simply combine multiple log entries into one, big chunk. it's ok that all messages share a timestamp, i don't need a line number or something. just log, what happens, not when and where.

Sounds like Log::Log4perl::Appender::Buffer ought to be able to accomplish that.. Perhaps you could post the code of your attempt to use it?
