I have a log file being updated by a third party program... I am trying to figure out how to have my app. recognize that the log file has been edited or data has been appended to that log file. Sort of like a listen() for a file change. I looked through all the stuff in my book on file I/O and cannot seem to come up with any ideas. I assume there is something in the windows API for this... Any ideas would be helpful, -- Warhorseii

Each file should have a timestamp indicating when they've last been modified. Check it. How to do that depends on what OS you're using.
