Subject [io] Tailer returning partial lines returned when EOF before newline
Date Tue, 24 May 2011 17:32:58 GMT
Hi All,

We are using to process log files for
insertion into a database.

What we are seeing is that occasionally a line fails to process because it
is incomplete.
In reviewing the code, it appears that Tailer.readLines delegates to which returns a partial line if EOF is

Shouldn't Tailer be providing a guarantee of complete lines?
Should we create a bug report for this?

FYI, we are using 1.6.0_15 on Linux.
