If you've worked with unix you know what tail does.  It lets you view the last few lines of a file.  The default is to show the last 30 lines but you can specify any number of lines.  It will also work with files that are locked by another process. Very useful for looking at things like log files. As a bonus, I've included the c++ source code.

Usage: tail.exe [-n number] filename
