    The update speed is tragic (take about 30+ seconds to notice any changes) and the GUI could use some modernizing.

    There's another Tail for Windows project hosted here in SF that looks much better than this one. If you search for "WinTail" you'll find it.

    The program compares itself to tail for unix, except that unix's tail is very fast to update. This program decides to once in a blue moon, and there's no way to force it it seems.

    Works like a charm. Will the code author please get in touch with me as I would like to license the code and build it into my desktop app dashboard for log file viewing. (rtischer@hiveware.com).

    Great utility but the pause doesn't work. May sound trivial but if you see a hit on a keyword what's the next thing you want to do? Scroll back and look at the entire line. You can't do that if you're watching something like logs from a busy mail server. Is this a dead project?

    Pros: It works, doesn't need to be installed and uses windows instead of the command line. Cons: Pausing and workspaces don't work.

    There hasn't been a release in donkeys years, but it's still a useful tool. What do you get over a command line tail you might ask? Well mainly color highlighting, but also it behaves like a normal window that can be resized unlike a windows command prompt. I go though periods of using it a lot.

    No further development? I think https://sourceforge.net/projects/wintail2/ is a better choice for file monitor.
