Reading log files that get overwrittenby Zapawork (Beadle)
|on Jan 02, 2003 at 18:22 UTC||Need Help??|
Zapawork has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
So here is my problem,
I have a Nokia internet appliance running a modified version of bsd. It is running checkpoint firewall 1, this is just for background knowledge, so none of the solutions can be modify the software.
It is creating a log file that grows to a specified size and then starts writing back at 0 again.
I want to be able to continously read this log file, determine when it has reset it's pointer and then read from the top again. I need to then send this information off via syslog to another server.
