( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I suppose a poor man's subsitute would be to just stat all the *.xml files, sleep for 10 (30?) seconds, stat them all again, and skip any where the filesize has changed. Not perfect, but probably works most of the time. Probably more reliable than just processing any file more than 2 seconds old.

Another thought...use the Linux inotify() api so that you can be more event oriented. See Linux::Inotify2. Then, every time a new file is created in the directory, you get an event. That would keep you from having to scan the directory. Though, it would increase the risk of processing a "in-use" file, so you'd need pretty good logic to determine when the file is done being written.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
