The free as in beer, liberal, code & content retro-style graphical MMORPG :)


Root-tail displays log files in the screen background - basically a graphical tail -f.


Root-tail displays log files in the X root window or another window. It can use different colours for different files, match log entries by regular expressions and more.

Some history about this fork: some time before the Cebit00, I got my hands on a program named root-tail. Its purpose is to display logfiles in different colours on your root-window. That is, it works just like tail -f.

Unfortunately, root-tail was thoroughly broken, so I fixed it and contacted its author. I never received a reply, so I decided to publish my modified version of root-tail here.
