perl-file-readbackwards 1.06 Read a file backwards by lines
This module reads a file backwards line by line. It is simple to use, memory efficient and fast. It supports both an object and a tied handle interface.
It is intended for processing log and other similar text files which typically have their newest entries appended to them. By default files are assumed to be plain text and have a line ending appropriate to the OS. But you can set the input record separator string on a per file basis.
