treetop ------- TreeTop is a 'top' like log file monitor. When a file changes the last line of text in that file is displayed. Selecting the file in the tool will display the last bits of the file providing potentially more information than just the last line. Usage ----- TreeTop requires a list of files to monitor. This list is contained in a textfile where each filename (preferably fullpath) is delimited by a newline. This config file will ignore any data following a '#' comment character. For example here is a sample 'config' file: # Sample config file: myconfig.config /var/log/httpd.log /var/log/messages To run treetop, execute the binary with the config file as the argument, for example: ./treetop myconfig.config Dependencies ------------ libncurses libc Building -------- Simply run `make' which will produce (hopefully) the `treetop' binary. Installation ------------ The file can be copied anywhere, spread the magic. Contact ------- Matt Davis (enferex) email@example.com "Monkeys like trees, climb to the top."
