Compile dependencies :
    You will need :
    Package: libncurses5-dev
      Version: 5.7+20100313-1
    $ aptitude install libncurses5-dev uthash-dev

    Then, to compile just type :
    $ make

Run :
    You will need :
    $ aptitude install libncurses5
    $ ./logtop

Usage :
  logtop displays real-time count of strings recieved in standard input.
  I's useful for some cases, like getting the IP flooding your server :
  $ tail -f /var/log/apache2/access.log | cut -d' ' -f1 | logtop

  Or the top buzzing article of your blog :
  $ tail -f /var/log/apache2/access.log | cut -d' ' -f7 | grep article | logtop


Development :
  I use a hashtable to store strings and an AVL tree to store frequencies,
  so I can fetch by string or fetch ordered by frequency to display the
  top-strings.

About libavl:
  The libavl used here is the Ben Pfaff's one, statically build with logtop, as
  Ben want it to be (see INSTALL file and here :
  http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2001/07/msg01303.html)
  So this libavl is NOT packaged as a library for Debian, the libavl you'll
  found in Debian repositories is the Wessel Dankers's one.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
