Open Source Tail for Win32

Tail for Win32 is used to monitor changes to files; displaying the changed lines in realtime. This makes Tail ideal for watching log files.

Tail has a plugin architecture, which allows notifications to occur when certain keywords are detected in monitored files. At the moment a MAPI plugin is available, and work is in progress on an SMTP version.


A few features of Tail:

  • Watch multiple files in realtime
  • Detect keyword matches, and highlight occurences
  • Send mail notifications on keyword matches by SMTP or MAPI
  • Plugin architecture allows you to write specialised handlers
  • Can process files of any size on all types of drive (local or networked)
