        Daemon::Generic::Event - Generic daemon framework with


        use Daemon::Generic::Event;

        @ISA = qw(Daemon::Generic::Event);

        sub gd_preconfig {
               # stuff


       Daemon::Generic::Event is a subclass of Daemon::Generic that predefines some methods:

       gd_run()       Setup a periodic callback to "gd_run_body()" if there is a "gd_run_body()".
                      Call "Event::loop()".

                      Bind SIGHUP to call "gd_reconfig_event()".  Bind SIGINT to call

       To use Daemon::Generic::Event, you have to provide a "gd_preconfig()" method.   It can be
       empty if you have a "gd_run_body()".

       Set up your own events in "gd_preconfig()" and "gd_postconfig()".

       If you have a "gd_run_body()" method, it will be called once per second or every
       "gd_interval()" seconds if you have a "gd_interval()" method.  Unlike in
       Daemon::Generic::While1, "gd_run_body()" should not include a call to "sleep()".
