This will read a file backwards untill yestersdays date. If your log file is large try file::Readbackwards.
my $file; my @lines; open FH, 'yourlogfile.log'; @lines = <FH>; LINE: while ($file = pop @lines) { if ( $file =~ m/^ERR*/ ) { print "$file\n"; } last LINE if ($file !~ m/^$today*/ && $file =~ m/^(\S+\s+\S+\s+\d+)\s+\d+:\d+:\d+\s+(\d+)/x ); }
Or you can try this...

If the log file is large (which log files sometimes tend to be) then you might want to use File::ReadBackwards or risk getting an 'Out of memory' error.

I hope that helps.

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.
