in thread Filehandles vs Uninitialized Values in pattern match
If the file is large you might not get great performance so YMMV.
That's probably not going to be much of an issue as (quoth the manual)
The file is not loaded into memory, so this will work even for gigantic files.
I don't know if Tie::File seeks from the end for large/negative indexes, but it's surely possible for it to do so.
I just read the code... please ignore.
