Reading text file in real time

I'd like to see a feature where I can read a text file in real time, similar to the functionality of tail -f. I want to use log files form my application to drive visualizations in real-time

shell command?

For now, this could probably be accomplished using tail -f within the Shell Command patch.

would you want it to continue to accumulate text in a huge buffer, or just output the last N lines?
