Program for incremental logfile reader
Re-Tail is a command line program which is intended as an intelligent incremental logfile reader. It will read a file or group of files given on the command line, and output any changes since last time it read the files in question. It will attempt to compensate if the filesize changes unexpectedly, and will also attempt to compensate if the file contents changes as well. It is not a very complex program.
