SwingTail 是一个小的Java/Swing图形化工具，实现了 Unix 下的 tail 命令的功能。该工具界面简单，支持同时打开多个文件，可暂停和恢复执行，还提供类似于浏览器的书签功能。
Font, how many lines that should be read from end of the files upon opening (-n parameter in Unix), and various other settings can be configured using a simple settings dialog.
Through the filter dialog the user can set a variety of different filters for the tailing. Rows can be marked with color or sound, hidden or, when found, pause the tail among other things. Each filter can be activated or deactivated by selecting a check box, this way the user will never have to delete a existing filter just so it will not run.
Starting with version 3.0 the bookmark support has been significantly improved and the bookmarks can now be managed in a web browser like fashion.
SwingTail is distributed as a runnable JAR file and requires Java 1.6.
All you need to do to start SwingTail is to double click on the JAR file and it should start right away if you have Java 1.6 (or newer) installed.
The source code can be downloaded from the following subversion repository: svn://unlogic.se/swingtail
