1) Process A is created with standard output redirected to file F
2) Process A writes 1000 bytes to the standard output. (to F)
3) Process B truncates this file to zero lenght, with "truncate( path, 0 )"
4) Process A writes to the standard output another 1000 bytes
Now the file is 2000 bytes long, and the first 1000 bytes are filled up
with zeroes. Is it intended to be this way?
What i'd like to have is to "log" the standard output, and truncate it
Thanks for your insight,
