How much control do you have over this external application? I've so far avoided this type of problem by making my logs have date stamps, like 20070925.log. Then I'll hold off on post-processing for a day, and I can rely on the file not being in use.

    (Especially when not on Windows) I usually have the writing process write to a *.tmp file and then rename the file after they are done writing it.

[Corion]: Discipulus: If you want to rewrite the SVG, then yes, something like XML::Twig should be enough. I would try to not modify the SVG but only modify the display, but so far I haven't convinced IE to change the style...
Corion gives up
[Discipulus]: ah! so you mean if i need a static image i can use Twig, if on the fly better css selector and mody attrs (jquery?), rigth?
[LanX]: not sure what you guys are taking about, but a DOM manipulation in JS shouldn't be difficult
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah, that's what I would try (but so far, I can't even change the colors manually in the SVG, which is why I gave up ;) )
Discipulus bad sign..
[Discipulus]: italian doc says to modify somehow the initial SVG before using it with D3.js
[Discipulus]: LanX the fact is that my js ability is even poorer than my Perl one..
