Re: grep | sed do not function inline?

How do you actually run tail with -f? Do you just let it go in it's
own xterm and periodically check to see if it has spit out anything
of concern? Or can you use it in a terminal you're using for other
tasks as a background process? Sounds useful, but I'm not sure exactly
how you'd operate it...

I use gtail -f in a separate screen window to watch log files. I also
sent the output to "logcolorise.pl" which makes things pretty. Screen
saves me from using multiple xterms for things like this.
