( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hey, I left this running all day, but for a file that is on a networked drive:
perl -e"open F, $ARGV[0] or die $!; while( 1 ){ print <F>; Win32::Slee +p 1 }" f:\dev1\Logfile\Background1_08-Oct-2003-12-07-35.log
During the day the network fouled and the drives needed to be reconnected, but the program never stopped. It just hung.

So my question is, in this case, how would you know if the filehandle was still open and connected to the file?
