Subject: IO::Async::File sensitive to file going away
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 379b
When a file watcher is active, and the file is moved/deleted, at some stage the call to stat() will make the program crash. As a trivial counter measure I wrapped the call into an eval {}. Interestingly enough, IO::Async::File recovers nicely when the file is recreated. Trivial patch attached. \rho PS: I am doing A LOT with IO::Async now and it has not yet failed me. Thx!!
