Creating conditional symlink

view story

http://www.unix.com – Hi All, Is there any way to create a symlink that will point to last 1000 line of a log file. My symlink will always point to "tail -1000 logfile". This can be achieved by writing a script and scheduling with high frequency, but I am looking for some other alternatives. Please let me know if there is any way to do so. Thanks in advance. (HowTos)
