Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
OK...here is my dilema. I have a file that is constantly being appended too from another script using a while loop. I'm trying to ficure out an easy way to detect any changes in the files contents. I've thought about monitoring the file timestamp change but it only gets updated after the script writing to the file terminates. I've also tried reading the contents, sleeping a second, reading it again and I'm able to determine the delta. This work but I was wondering if there is a more elegant solution.
