One of my favorite tools is less. Less is more. It’s such a fun name. I just found a little known keystroke in less, upper case F.
From the man page:
Scroll forward, and keep trying to read when the end of file is reached. Normally this command would be used when already at the end of the file. It is a way to monitor the tail of a file which is growing while it is being viewed. (The behavior is similar to the “tail -f” command.)
Wow! Now I can have a search running, tail some log files, and break out of the tail when I see something highlighted scroll by.
