That's all pretty much as I had imagined the direction I'd need to go. But had hoped for something a little more fun, or elegant.
Tho your suggestion is elegant in it's simplicity. Which is worth quite a bit, in my book. :-)
Thanks again, Alexander!
Forgot to mention; yes. You are correct. As near as I can figure, Apache does write in append mode.
Oh, and this ain't Apache I'm working with. But logging to a UNIX pipe is still valid. :-)
and sorry for the additional edits. But I had a lot on my plate this AM, and I was a bit pressed for time. But by the same token, didn't want to let all the work go unacknowledged. :-)
