in thread Time::HiRes strange behavior
This is a great suggestion, rubasov, and it works well except for one thing.
When I use this on a CIFS or SMB mounted filesystem, it reloads (and re-"tails") the entire file each time it changes. On a local filesystem, it works fine. So it looks like I have to port the whole thing over to run locally under Windows. :(
However, I do appreciate the response, it's definitely helped.
I've also tried using tail -s with a value less than 1.0, and while it appears to accept the value, it doesn't actually change the behavior in any way I can see.
