There are times when you need to do work on a Windows computer. That could be a bit frustrating since Windows lacks a few tools which normally exists on a Linux or OS X environment.
Tail is one of the tools which makes your life easier and which are missing in Windows. I thought it might be a nice side project to create a platform independent replacement for the tail tool. Ponytail is now the result of that project.
This first version of Ponytail contains a minimum java implementation for tailing one or more log files. Ponytail is now a servlet and needs to be run in a servlet container.
Ponytail is licensed under the MIT license and you could find it on Github.
