I’m needed to monitor a log file while I’m doing some debugging. The script I’m debugging writes to the terminal (STDIO) so having debugging info mixed in with that is annoying and I miss things.
What I would like to do is write my debugging info to a log file, simply appending each entry, and have a separate terminal window that is monitoring that file and displaying each entry as it is added.
Could I do something like:
echo << "=-EOF-="
where that somehow reads from the file and echoes each line until it encounters the magic termination string?
I have a feeling that this is possible, but I don’t really know where to begin.
I’m on 10.14 Mojave, so I’m using Bash
