real tail instead of reload

    I like the reload on file change function in Notepad++ but an option to make it auto reload would be nice. Something simmilar to tail -f file. Would that be hard to implement?

      If you open the Preferences dialog and look in the "MISC" tab there is an option under "File Status Auto-detection" called "Update silently".  I think this is what you are looking for.

    Unfortunately that is broken (doesn't auto-reload when other processes write to the file).
