in reply to Is there a way to read a file backwards?

I think that btrott definitely has the right answer. It does not make sense to me to reinvent the wheel (an expression that merlyn likes also) when somebody coded a module that "cooks everything for you".

I will go with File::ReadBackwards, as it does exactly what I want.

Thanks all for your help, though!
