    Default tail -f in qt

    hi
    I have a file from which I will extract data and display. The file will keep on getting new entries from other program. Now My gui should be able to extract new entries from the file. Something like “tail -f” in linux.
    Is there any way to implement such thing in qt.
    Thank you

    Yes, of course.
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.

    Watch for changes of the file with QFileSystemWatcher and then react on those changes in the application.
