There is a good reason why Tail and Grep are standard tools in every developer's toolbox. These programs are great at helping you manage your log files. LogViewPlus does an even better job because it goes a step further and parses your log files. It understands your logs. This gives you filtering and navigation options beyond those available in a typical text editor.
Use a text editor to edit text.
Use LogViewPlus to read log files.
When you are analysing log files, you often need to read from the file in near real-time. LogViewPlus processes real-time updates through functionality similar to the Unix 'tail' command which tracks log entries as they are written to the log file. This means you immediately see the new log entries in your log viewer. No need to mess around with a refresh button – everything happens automatically.
