Thanks for your reply sundialsvc4, I think this was the conclusion that I was coming to but it's good to here it from someone else.

    I have found a simple solution for my particular case, as I know that I only want to match certain strings from the log file and none of the match strings will be none ASCII characters.

    I can use the ReadBackwards to read the line in then strip out none ASCII and null characters.

    my $ERRORLINES_IN = File::ReadBackwards->new($logfile) or die "$logfil +e : $!\n"; while (defined($logline = $ERRORLINES_IN->readline)) { $logline =~ s/[^[:ascii:]]//g; $logline =~ s/\0//g;

    It's not a perfect solution but it works for my case.
