in thread A Simple "Tail" Question

Ah but thats the thing, I dont want the output from the script to end until the client request ends. i.e. a real tail, not just a snapshot.

    As far as server push things go, remember that IE doesnt really like pushing things. See (Re: Generating a 'please wait' message and push_handler and status page question.) You may be able to do something with Javascript? What about a frame that reloads every second or some-such-what-not? Every time it reloaded, it would get the latest tail info.

    I know, in theory you could flush the output ($| = 1; (see your replies above)) and the browser will display stuff as it gets it. But I know IE sometimes waits until the page is complete, then shows said content. Oh well. Just my $.02. Hope it helps.
