This will tail a default number of lines.

I'm looking for a way to identify the last line, and when launching the PHP script I get the added line between now and that last one.

There is a "logtail" utility in the "logtool" package, but I want a full PHP equivalent.

The "logtail" utility inserts a "marker" in the logfile, which I find intrusive and requiring root privilege.

My guess is identifying lines with hash or storing the last line in e tmp file, or...

I'm looking for the least worst solution.
