    Command:

    tail

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           tail [OPTION]... [FILE]...
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Print  the  last  10  lines of each FILE to standard output.  With more
           than one FILE, precede each with a header giving the file  name.   With
           no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.
    
           Mandatory  arguments  to  long  options are mandatory for short options
           too.
    
           -c, --bytes=K
                  output the last K bytes; alternatively,  use  -c  +K  to  output
                  bytes starting with the Kth of each file
    
           -f, --follow[={name|descriptor}]
                  output appended data as the file grows; -f, --follow, and --fol-
                  low=descriptor are equivalent
    
           -F     same as --follow=name --retry
    
           -n, --lines=K
                  output the last K lines, instead of the last 10; or use -n +K to
                  output lines starting with the Kth
    
           --max-unchanged-stats=N
                  with  --follow=name,  reopen  a  FILE which has not changed size
                  after N (default 5) iterations to see if it has been unlinked or
                  renamed  (this  is  the  usual case of rotated log files).  With
                  inotify, this option is rarely useful.
    
           --pid=PID
                  with -f, terminate after process ID, PID dies
    
           -q, --quiet, --silent
                  never output headers giving file names
    
           --retry
                  keep trying to open a file even when it is or becomes inaccessi-
                  ble; useful when following by name, i.e., with --follow=name
    
           -s, --sleep-interval=N
                  with -f, sleep for approximately N seconds (default 1.0) between
                  iterations.
    
                  With inotify and --pid=P, check process P at least once every  N
                  seconds.
    
           -v, --verbose
                  always output headers giving file names
    
           --help display this help and exit
           tor (e.g., log rotation).  Use --follow=name in that case.  That causes
           tail to track the named file  in  a  way  that  accommodates  renaming,
           removal and creation.
