> I've been trying to setup a small reader for a log created as

> The behaviour I'm after is a reader that will can run in a separate VM

> The reader should open the wrap log in 'read_only' mode and start
> doing sequential reads of the log data from the top. When it hits the
> end of the (circular) log, it should start polling for new data.
> I've tried to create this behaviour using both the disk_log:chunk/2,3

> of those mechanisms seem to work. When these read functions return
> eof, there seems to be now way of making them follow the "write
> pointer" used by the writing VM, back to the first log file (or in
> some cases even to the next file in the log).
