How many of us has used unix that we sometimes hate to look though the error and server logs for details. Sometimes it’s bothersome that the error log is so big that it’ll take awhile before it can open that log file. Well, for experienced unix users, they will know how to make use of the tail function which allows them to see the last few lines of the log file.
Now how about if one person backups the log file and brings it back home and starts it in Microsoft Windows. Opening the 1Gb error log file using a double click would be overkill, so if you haven’t heard of Tail for Win32 by Paul Perkins, then you should get one.
What this program does is that it function exactly like the tail -f command of unix. Now everything is made easy like that.
