An old favorite from
xtail-2.1: description + notes
comp.unix.sources, vol 7.
Description from the original shar file:
xtail watches the growth of files. It is similar to
tail -f, but may watch many files at once. The syntax is:xtail pathname ...xtail will monitor all the specified files and display information added to them. If you specify a directory name, xtail will watch all the files in that directory - including those created after "xtail" was started. If you give xtail a name which doesn't exist, it will watch for the creation of the named entry. My favorite usage is:xtail /usr/spool/uucp/.Log/*
