  Description     : inotify enhanced tail

inotail is a replacement for the 'tail' program found in the base
installation of every Linux/UNIX system. It makes use of the inotify
infrastructure in recent versions of the Linux kernel to speed up
tailing files in the follow mode (the '-f' option). Standard tail polls
the file every second by default while inotail listens to special events
sent by the kernel through the inotify API to determine whether a file
needs to be reread.
