It's pretty cool. I use it all the time instead of the classic "tail
-f", it gives a much better idea about how the file is actually updated,
especially for things like /var/log/maillog on a relatively busy server.
I made a spec file and a couple packages, one for RHEL 5 x86_64, the
other for Fedora 7 i386, you can find them here:
If anyone wants to take over the package and include it in Fedora, that
would be great. I can't go through the process of becoming a developer
to submit the package myself, it's way too complicated and I have almost
no time to spare these days.
