Subject Handy tool: xlogmaster
Date Wed, 26 Aug 1998 13:33:36 GMT

Just a hint to a very hand tool I've using since a few days:


It's a X11/GTK+ application which basically provides the functionality we
developers usually achieve by opening 5 xterms and running "tail -f" in each
for the various logfiles we have to observe. Currently for the mod_ssl
development I've to observe four logfiles (access_log, error_log,
ssl_engine_log, ssl_request_log) and found it again really nasty to fiddle
around with four xterms beside my editor and shell. Now with xlogmaster
there is only one logfile-window and inside this one I can select very
quickly the logfile I want to see. So, when you are also annoyed of the
logfiles you should have a look at this program.

PS: FreeBSD users can find a port under sysutils/xlogmaster/ in the
    ports area.
