in reply to Log::Log4perl Module

I was thinking of rolling this up myself with a Buffered Appender, but this FAQ looks as if it does just that:

How can I bundle several log messages into one?

(with a little seasoning to taste for the log message, of course).

    A side effect of this buffering approach is that the timestamp will be incorrect for most messages, especially when there is a long delay between messages. Adding time-based signals could reduce the problem, but not mitigate it completely.
    No matter how great and destructive your problems may seem now, remember, you've probably only seen the tip of them. [1]
      Agreed. The OP is apparently trying to emulate behavior of syslog, where some(?) implementations do this by default. But there are plenty of rants about why this is not necessarily a good idea.

    Thanks a lot. I done appropriate checking in the log function to compare the messages excluding timestamp.
