Multiple tail -f in one window.

TkTailf is a utility to keep watch to files. Usually one use 'tail -f' for this perpose, TkTailf provide many enhancement with it.


  • Keep watch with many files with one TkTailf
  • GUI. There is a scroll bar for Each frame. You can scroll back.
  • Auto truck with new message.
  • When new message appear in a frame, frame title flashs like /var/log/maillog in above image.
  • Plathome

    TkTailf uses Tcl/Tk. I checked with Tcl 7.4 and Tk 4.0 on FreeBSD 2.1.0-RELEASE.
