./misc/p5-File-Tail, Perl5 module for reading from continuously updated files

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.3nb6, Package name: p5-File-Tail-1.3nb6, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The primary purpose of File::Tail is reading and analysing log files while
they are being written.

The module tries very hard NOT to ``busy-wait'' on a file that has little
traffic. If the file does not get altered for a while, File::Tail gets
suspicious and startschecking if the file was truncated, or moved and
recreated. If anything like that had happened, File::Tail will quietly
reopen the file, and continue reading.


Required to run:

Log message:
Update packages using a search.cpan.org HOMEPAGE to metacpan.org.

The former now redirects to the latter.

This covers the most simple cases where http://search.cpan.org/dist/name
can be changed to https://metacpan.org/release/name.

Reviewed by hand to hopefully make sure no unwanted changes sneak in.

Update 1.0 to 1.3
-----------------
1.1     Lee Duncan drew my attention to Stephan Muller's fixes for Windows
	compatibility
        Changed the use of the system's mv command to using File::Copy in the
        tests. (Steffen Mueller)
        Added machine-readable license statement to Makefile.PL and thus
        META.yml (Steffen Mueller)
        The sixth test in 10/open.t is skipped on win32 because you can't just
        move files around that are opened. (Steffen Mueller)
        Due to using sysread and friends, there were newline problems on win32.
        That should be fixed now. (Steffen Mueller)

1.2     Break the infinite loop that can result when the average length of lines
        causes the attempt to fill the tail buffer to fill with the exact same
        or even smaller number of lines.

1.3     Fix for a stupid bug in 1.2 (GFILATOV, Slaven_Rezic)
        Added a warning for use of debug in a non-debug version of File::Tail
        Shows a warning when maxbuf is set to a too-small value

        Invoking name_changes callback changes the value of input attribute
        (sottile@ix.netcom.com)

        When deciding to reopen the file, check if the inode matches (that
         would mean it has not been ranamed)
