This doesn't directly answer your question, but may make it moot. Have you looked at the File::Tail module on CPAN?

    Unfortunately File::Tail still blocks, it'd be helpful if it had a non-blocking mode.

    Thanks!

      File::Tail has a "nowait" option, though even there (in the docs) it also suggests using select.
        I will definitely give this a try.

        Thanks again!
