Case 1: You can control the application that writes the file:

  • Make the application output another "signal" file with size 0 (like "touch signal-file" under Unix) when processing of the file to be written has completed.
  • Make the monitoring code react to the signal file instead of the original written file.

Case 2: You can not control the application that writes the file:

  • Have the monitoring code start another script that cyclically checks if the size of the file has changed (e.g., every 10 seconds).
  • If the file size has not changed since the last check, send the file to the Server.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
