I have a problem reading a text file.
I'm trying to read a log file, that is often written by an application. I'm tryin to make a sort of real-time-log-viewer.

I tried to open and read it with readln and with readfromfile but when the software reads the log, the writing application fails to write some rows and then the log is incomplete.

Can someone help me??

Thank you very much
