 inotail - inotify enhanced tail
o===============================o

inotail is a replacement for the 'tail' program found in the base installation
of every Linux/UNIX system. It makes use of the inotify infrastructure in recent
versions of the Linux kernel to speed up tailing files in the follow mode (the
'-f' option). Standard tail polls the file every second by default while inotail
listens to special events sent by the kernel through the inotify API to
determine whether a file needs to be reread.

Currently inotail is not fully compatible to neither POSIX or GNU tail but might
be in the future.

Requirements
------------
- Linux kernel 2.6.13 or higher with CONFIG_INOTIFY enabled
- Standard C Library (tested with GNU libc but might work with others too)

License
-------
inotail is licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License Version 2.
You can find the full text in the file LICENSE in the source tree of inotail.

The files inotify.h and inotify-syscalls.h were taken from the source tree of
the linux kernel and slightly altered. Both are licensed under the terms of the
GNU General Public License v2.
