in thread Different perl behavior between V5.10 and V5.14

I've been asking around in a couple of places and someone else had pointed out that logtail itself has changed to now use inotify to tell when a file has changed and that there may now be more signals being tossed about as well. I don't know if this offers any additional info or not, but thought it worth mentioning.

So far I've been running my modified code and it seems to be working but I'd prefer a better approach than the one I'm using so maybe someone will come up with a better way to handle this.

thanks for all your feedback

    Yes, I was thinking about inotify too.. However I tested now on perl 5.14 + 5.10 on same machine (thanks to Perlbrew). 5.14 fails, 5.10 ok. Same machine. Same tail version.
