transalert_ctl - Command line daemon for Transform::Alert


    transalert_ctl {start|stop|status}? [OPTION]...
    Controls the Transform::Alert daemon.
    Control commands:
       start      Start up the daemon.  Default action if not specified.
       stop       Stop the daemon.  Typically requires a -p option.
       status     Print out diagnostics on what the status of the daemon is.  Typically requires a -p option.
       -c FILE    Loads FILE for configuration.  Required to start the daemon.
       -X         Foreground mode.  Log messages go to the screen.
       -l FILE    Sends Log4perl messages to FILE in background mode.  Defaults to ./transalert_ctl.log.
       -p FILE    Writes PID to FILE.  Defaults to ./
       -u USER    Run as USER.  Only applies if running as root.  Defaults to 'nobody'.
       -l4p FILE  Loads FILE for Log4perl configuration.
       -v         Debug mode.  Ignored if -l4p option is specified.
       -vv        Trace mode.  Ignored if -l4p option is specified.


Most of this stuff is pretty obvious. App::Daemon also has some useful information about the CLI options.


The -l and -p options should really have config file equivalents...

Double -v options don't combine into -vv.
