Wintail Color

Editors' Review

This handy, freeware utility for intermediate to advanced users brings the Unix Tail command to Windows. Wintail is a DOS command-line program that displays a specific number of characters from a given text file. It's best used to monitor changing log and error files in real time. It doesn't include a help file, but in classic command-line fashion it displays all options when invoked alone. You also can set the background and text colors. Novices can pass, but Wintail's small size and ease of use make it a great addition to any system administrator's toolbox.
