Specs: Windows XP
Need a program to monitor a log file (log file being standard txt file) and as it is updated I need to to send the new data to a com port.
has anyone come across something that will do this? or is there a way to write a batch file to complete this task?

If you want the log file constantly monitored, you will most likely need to leave the batch file running. This is never a good idea.

Can I put a question here?

Yea I agree a batch file is not ideal.
but more interested if it was possible and if so how to do it?
or even better still if anyone has come across an already written program that will do it for me :)
