You could be lazy and (ab)use File::Temp:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use POSIX (); use File::Temp (); my $log = File::Temp->new( UNLINK => 0, DIR => '/the/path/to/your/log/folder/', # isn't this too fancy?! you don't need "nice" file names* ;-) TEMPLATE => POSIX::strftime( 'simplebr_%Y%m%d%H%M%S_XXXX', localti +me ), SUFFIX => '.txt', ); print $log 'foo bar'; close $log;
* I guess your "logs" folder is in fact some kind of (very) poor man's queue. If this is correct, you don't want to *sort* those files on a file name basis because it would be too slow, better use whatever your underlying OS offers you for watching a folder (e.g. Sys::Gamin, Linux::Inotify, SGI::FAM, Win32::ChangeNotify). Anyway, you'll have to take some solid countermeasures in order to avoid trashing your disk. ;-)
