xtail - Watch the growth of files.

SYNTAX


xtail entry ...

DESCRIPTION


Xtail monitors one or more files, and displays all data written to a file since command
invocation. It is very useful for monitoring multiple logfiles simultaneously.

If an entry given on the command line is a directory, all files in that directory will be
monitored, including those created after the xtail invocation. If an entry given on the
command line doesn't exist, xtail will watch for it and monitor it once created. When
switching files in the display, a banner showing the pathname of the file is printed.

An interrupt character (usually CTRL/C or DEL) will display a list of the most recently
modified files being watched. Send a quit signal (usually CTRL/backslash) to stop xtail.

Use xtail online using onworks.net services
