Subject: multitail 6.5.2-1
Date: Tue, 21 Jun 2022 09:22:55 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

multitail 6.5.2-1 is now available in Cygwin. This is a new upstream
release. See the upstream changelog[1] for details.

MultiTail lets you view one or multiple files like the original tail
program. The difference is that it creates multiple windows on your console
(with ncurses). It can also:

* Monitor wildcards: if another file matching the wildcard has a more
recent modification date, it will automatically switch to that file. That
way you can, for example, monitor a complete directory of files.
* Merge 2 or more logfiles.
* Use colors while displaying the logfiles (through regular expressions),
for faster recognition of what is important and what not.
* Filter lines (again with regular expressions) and has interactive menus
for editing given regular expressions and deleting and adding windows.
* Have windows with the output of shell scripts and other software. When
viewing the output of external software, MultiTail can mimic the
functionality of tools like 'watch' and such.
