Subject: [PATCH] test: allow setting TAIL env to watch error logs
Date: Thu, 27 Apr 2017 00:54:51 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20170427005451.19296-1-e@80x24.org> (raw)

Setting TAIL=1 will automatically use the portable "tail -f".
This can be helpful in diagnosing failures during development.

GNU tail users may set TAIL="tail -F" (or "gtail -F")
to use the "-F" ("--follow=name") option to track changes
across SIGUSR1 log reopening testing.
