MultiTail : A tail CLI replacement for all Unices

All Unix users know how it is difficult to tail output of multiple files at a same time. Though ‘tail’ CLI available with LINUX is capable of giving just right output for multiple files, this flexibility is not available on all platforms.
I just came across a handy tool called ‘MultiTail’. ‘MultiTail’ functions similar to traditional ‘tail’ CLI except for the fact that it will able to monitor tail output of multiple files at the same time. ‘MultiTail’ is supported on Solaris, Linux, *BSD, IRIX, HP-UX, AIX, Tru64, SCO OpenServer platforms and also runs under Cygwin on Windows. ‘MultiTail’ has lots of features unlink ‘tail’ CLI.
Download MultiTail source and compile it on supported platforms and we are ready to go. MultiTail example page displays its sample usages. Don’t forget to look at screenshots before installing MultiTail.
