Linux: Less

Less Is More

Wait what?
I don't agree with that statement generally, but when it comes to linux, well yea "less".

I know many people that like to tail log files, my preferred method.


Less /path/to/log/file

My Observations:

It opens up a vim like terminal application that you can follow the logs and if needed, look into the logs.

Some Commands

ctrl+f = This is to go to the bottom
shift+f = This is to follow
ctrl+c = Cancel
q = Quit
