perlknight has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Fellow monks, I need some ideas on how to track log file. Basically I need to run it in daemon mode, so Proc::Daemon is in. I want to to spit out the most current line and also track if the file has been rotated. Any thoughts on this? Is there a module out there that already do this? Thanks.
