Bug#111309: ITP: xtail -- like "tail -f", but works on truncated files, directories, more

Package: wnpp
Version: N/A; reported 2001-09-05
Severity: wishlist

xtail watches the growth of files.  It's like running a "tail -f" on
a bunch of files at once.  It notices if a file is trunated and starts
from the beginning.  You can specify both filenames and directories on
the command line.  If you specify a directory, it watches all the files
in that directory.  It will notice when new files are created (and start
watching them) or when old files are deleted (and stop watching them).

It's available from http://www.unicom.com/sw/xtail/ .

The distribution doesn't include copyright terms.  I've mailed the author
about it.
