in thread Different perl behavior between V5.10 and V5.14

Thanks for the details but I guess I'm not sure I really sure what to do about this, especially since an earlier reply stated this does not happen on fedora and so feels like it could be outside of perl or at least not completely inside of perl.

From your reference to perl5140delta are you suggesting this IS a perl bug and should be reported?

    I am not 100% sure. I would wait couple of days, until maybe some Perl maintainers confirm here that it's a bug or not.
      I've been asking around in a couple of places and someone else had pointed out that logtail itself has changed to now use inotify to tell when a file has changed and that there may now be more signals being tossed about as well. I don't know if this offers any additional info or not, but thought it worth mentioning.

      So far I've been running my modified code and it seems to be working but I'd prefer a better approach than the one I'm using so maybe someone will come up with a better way to handle this.

      thanks for all your feedback


        Yes, I was thinking about inotify too.. However I tested now on perl 5.14 + 5.10 on same machine (thanks to Perlbrew). 5.14 fails, 5.10 ok. Same machine. Same tail version.
