  Description     : drop-in replacement for tail, using FAM for following files

turbotail provides almost all command line options as the normal tail
from coreutils, but when following files with -f, it doesn't poll the
file every second, but uses FAM to get informed about changes at the
file.

Excerpts from Faidon Liambotis's message of Sa Dez 19 21:54:08 +0100 2009:
> The above is incorrect; tail in coreutils >= 7.5 uses inotify and hence

Ok, didn't know that and i've never heart of inotail before, so i
think this is no longer a problem. I hope with sending this mail
also do nnn-close@, the bug is closed.
