    use Log::Log4perl::Util::Semaphore;
    my $sem = Log::Log4perl::Util::Semaphore->new( key => "abc" );
      # ... critical section 
    $sem->semset( uid  => (getpwnam("hugo"))[2],

Log::Log4perl::Util::Semaphore provides the synchronisation mechanism for the Synchronized.pm appender in Log4perl, but can be used independently of Log4perl.

As a convenience, the uid field accepts user names as well, which it translates into the corresponding uid by running getpwnam.
