Using Daemons, how do I specify that my script's log goes in /log/ and its pid goes in /tmp/pids/?
I've read the docs, and I see :dir/:dir_mode, but I can only make it do one or the other, not both -- seems like a really bad set of options if you ask me.
It doesn't look like vanilla
Daemons can do what you want, but it's fixable. Try something like this:
require 'rubygems' require 'daemons' module Daemons class Application def logfile; '/log/f1'; end def output_logfile; '/log/f2'; end end end Daemons.run '/tmp/test.rb', :dir => '/tmp/pids', :dir_mode => :normal, :ontop => false, :log_output => true
You probably want the logic of *logfile to act more like the originals; just scan the daemons source for def.logfile. I would also have rather patched a subclass of
Application but it is instantiated by name elsewhere in module Daemons so that makes things tricky.
