in reply to Read log which is being updated continuisly

You may need to adjust the parameters you pass to new(). E.g. with

perl -MFile::Tail -E '$f = File::Tail->new(q[/var/log/foo/bar.log]); p +rint $l while $l = $f->read'
I had to wait 9 seconds before output was produced. But with
perl -MFile::Tail -E '$f = File::Tail->new(name=> q[/var/log/foo/bar.l +og], tail=>10, maxinterval=>0.5); print $l while $l = $f->read'
The output appears right away.
