Re: [NTB] Auto Reload of .txt Files
- Hi Andy:
I'm replying to this on Off-topic list and copying you in case you're not
subscribed to it
There is a unix utility "tail" that if invoked from the command line as:
tail -f "file_spec" will put up a dos box and in real-time show lines added
to a watched file.
Unfortunately, its not part of the standard Windows OS but freeware windows
equivalents of many useful Unix utilities are available:
the second is a little easier to install - with either you will want to put
the location of their binary files in your PATH so they can be invoked
without having to provide a full location path to them.
Regards ... Alec
