    Command:

    tailf

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           tailf [OPTION] file
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           tailf  will print out the last 10 lines of a file and then wait for the
           file to grow.  It is similar to tail -f but does not  access  the  file
           when  it  is not growing.  This has the side effect of not updating the
           access time for the file, so a filesystem flush does not occur periodi-
           cally when no log activity is happening.
    
           tailf  is  extremely  useful  for monitoring log files on a laptop when
           logging is infrequent and the user desires that the hard disk spin down
           to conserve battery life.
    
           Mandatory  arguments  to  long  options are mandatory for short options
           too.
    
           -n, --lines N, -N
                  output the last N lines, instead of the last 10.
