in reply to How to read a file after a certain interval continuously

Does the file ever get rolled (renamed to $file.bak and a new $file created - .bak is just an example, could be numbered or dated backups as well)? If so, you will have to deal with the logic of parsing the remains of the old file and then starting at the beginning of the new file as well.
