tail [OPTION]... [FILE]...

       Print  the  last  10  lines of each FILE to standard output.  With more
       than one FILE, precede each with a header giving the file  name.   With
       no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.

       Mandatory  arguments  to  long  options are mandatory for short options

       -c, --bytes=K
              output the last K bytes; alternatively,  use  -c  +K  to  output
              bytes starting with the Kth of each file

       -f, --follow[={name|descriptor}]
              output appended data as the file grows; -f, --follow, and --fol-
              low=descriptor are equivalent

       -F     same as --follow=name --retry

       -n, --lines=K
              output the last K lines, instead of the last 10; or use -n +K to
              output lines starting with the Kth

              with  --follow=name,  reopen  a  FILE which has not changed size
              after N (default 5) iterations to see if it has been unlinked or
              renamed  (this  is  the  usual case of rotated log files).  With
              inotify, this option is rarely useful.

              with -f, terminate after process ID, PID dies

       -q, --quiet, --silent
              never output headers giving file names

              keep trying to open a file even when it is or becomes inaccessi-
              ble; useful when following by name, i.e., with --follow=name

       -s, --sleep-interval=N
              with -f, sleep for approximately N seconds (default 1.0) between
              iterations.  With inotify and --pid=P, check process P at  least
              once every N seconds.

       -v, --verbose
              always output headers giving file names

       --help display this help and exit

              output version information and exit

       tail to track the named file  in  a  way  that  accommodates  renaming,
       removal and creation.
