Topic: Stuck on windows and envious of tail -f?

Not sure if this is the right place for this(apologies before hand mods)

Those of you like me who are stuck with windows may wanna check out:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/tailforwin32

Just open up your development log with it and you have yourself a "tail -f log/development.log" big_smile

You can also install cygwin and have a tail -f command. The advantage is ASCII color codes correctly display in a cygwin console.
