  1. Signal
for rotating. Please give me a small example. Thanks.

  1. use Logfile::Rotate;
  2. $logfile = new Logfile::Rotate(
  3.                 File   => "/var/adm/log/syslog",
  4.                 Count  => 5,
  6.                 Signal => 
  7.                    sub {
  8.                         open PID, "/etc/" or
  9.                            die "Unable to open pid file:$!\n";
  10.                         chomp($pid = <PID>);
  11.                         close PID;
  12.                         # should check validity first
  13.                         kill 'HUP', $pid;

Could you please explain your requirement clearly? It is not very clear from your statements and provided code. If you can write in steps like:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Have a program doing something
  2. Want to print all activity of that program in a Log file
  3. Any specific operation I want to do
  4. Close the log file
