file-tail – File::Tail for Ruby


This Library is similar to Perl's File::Tail. It can be used to extend Ruby's File-objects, as mixin for own File-derived classes, or by using the included simple File::Tail::Logfile class.


The library can be installed via rubygems:

# gem install file-tail

The gem and the source archive can also be downloaded directly from
