     This carefully designed VB CLASS encapsulates the following UNIX shell commands: CAT, HEAD, TAIL, >> (Append) and some more like GetUniqueTempFileName. With properties like FILTER (grep), CancelParsing, IgnoreLinesWith, LinesToHandle and some more handling of text files is easy and fast implemented into your current project. ____ A detailed example for every command is included. Error handling is fully implemented, comments are included and code is fine structured. If you are interested in "things behind": Have a closer look to the ring buffer technik used in TAIL() to save memory. btw: We DON'T load the whole file into memory, so even VERY large files can be handled (e.g. catch the last 50 lines from a 2 GByte logfile without any problems ;) ...) _______ Constructive comments are welcome - votes are motivating ;) ! ______ Regards__Light Templer_______________________________________________UPDATE 1 - Fixed the problem with empty 'IgnoreLinesWith' Update 2 - The check for missing path/filename was against the wrong var.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
