in thread guidance with a realtime log reader

Thank you so much for responding ... I'll try to work on it this weekend to convert from bash to perl. And good call with the log rotating. :) If anyone is interested, here is my bash script:
#!/bin/bash string="connection_input: conn=11" tail -n 0 -F /var/log/ldap.log | \ while read LINE do echo "$LINE" | grep -q $string if [ $? = 0 ] then echo -e "$string found on $HOSTNAME" | mail -s "LDAP authentication on + $(hostname)" teamsupport@yourdomain.com fi done
But I have to start it with a no hangup script
#!/bin/bash nohup ./ldap_log_reader.sh 0<&- &>/dev/null &
