I like tail. I of course refer to the log monnitoring application, get your mind out of the gutter. I've been using an older tail utility for windows for years now, but I've always had one gripe, and that is the fact that I had to open multiple instances when there was more then one file I wanted to watch. Sure, there are fairly inexpensive file monitor tools out there, but what's the point of paying when I can roll my own. So that's what I did.


This tool allows you to monitor or tail multiple files from withing a single tabbed window, one tab per file. That's all it does. You still need to make your own darn coffee. Oh, by the way, you can open multiple files at once from within the open dialog.


Note:This app depends on the IniFileManager and the MruStripMenu classes.
