Re: [BillKSmith] File::Tail Problems

Earlier post from Dave

From the command line tail -f > file.txt has the same problem.

That tells me that the problem is probably at the OS level. However, we haven't been given any details on how/when he's viewing file.txt. Is it as it's being written to via another tail -f process in a separate terminal window? Or is the tail -f process being killed and the file then loaded into a text editor?

I often redirect the output of tail -f of large fast growing log files and have never come across his reported issue.
