The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
See the attached screen shot for word-level highlighting.
The Tail for Win32 program is publicly open source and it has some bugs and
also are incomplete program because the original developer did not continue
working on it.
The only reason I use it is its word-level highligting feature. It makes the
legibility of log so easy and fast. It is a MUST to implement for real good
The attached screen shot logs multiple processes in one log file (one
application has several processes coworking together) and I tell each process,
thread, and function name from different colors. I can so easily see when
processes and threads are switching and so on. Without this feature my eyes
would be completely exausted to tell what interactions between processe,
threads and functions are happening.
To see it yourself, downloand Tail.exe, Tail8.reg, and AllProcesses.log.
Then run Tail8.reg first and then Tail.exe.
And finally open AllProcesses.log from Tail.exe.
That's it for hoping for word-level highlighting feature to be added asap.

Alternative solution would be to introduce a columnizer feature, and then split
each line into user defined columns and have the thread-name in a seperate
column. Then it would be easy to implement single-column-highlighting.
