Sometimes we need to watch file changes in real-time mode, for example to watch LOG file of an executing application.

Lister could has an option to be switched in auto-refresh mode (and option to switch this mode off respectively). Additional options of this mode could be:

  • refresh time (in seconds/miliseconds);
  • shift position automatically to: begining / end - to see changes immediately without manual scrolling (entries to log file can be added at the head or at the tail).

For instance, FAR Manager's file viewer has such feature.
