Dumping a multi Gigabyte log file into an array is going to get ugly quickly. A combination of the Perl internals and the IO buffering on the computer should take care of this situation line by line.

    Here's what I have:
    use strict; use warnings; my $logfile="log.txt"; my $error="DOWN"; my $warn="PROBLEM"; my $redbutton="\<img src\=\'default_files/perlredblink\.gif'>"; my $greenbutton="\<img src\=\'default_files/perlgreenblink\.gif'>"; my $yellowbutton="\<img src\=\'default_files/perlyellowblink\.gif'>"; open LOG, $logfile or die "Cannot open $logfile for read :$!"; my $button = $greenbutton; while ($_ = <LOG>) { if ($_ =~ /$error/i) { $button = $redbutton; print "<!--Content-type: text/html-->\n\n"; print "$button"; last; } elsif ($_ =~ /$warn/i) { $button = $yellowbutton; print "<!--Content-type: text/html-->\n\n"; print "$button"; last; } else { print "<!--Content-type: text/html-->\n\n"; print "$button"; last; } } close LOG;
    Unfortunately, it does everything I want except go through the log line by line. How can I safely get this program to do that? Can you explain the alternative to using an array and/or a safe way to do this using an array? Thanks!
