TAIL(1)                                                   TAIL(1)

     NAME
          tail - deliver the last part of a file

     SYNOPSIS
          tail +_number[l_b_c_] [ file ]

     DESCRIPTION
          Tail copies the named file to the standard output beginning
          at a designated place.  If no file is named, the standard
          input is used.

          Copying begins at distance +number from the beginning, or
          -number from the end of the input.  Number is counted in
          units of lines, blocks or characters, according to the
          appended option l, b or c. When no units are specified,
          counting is by lines.

     SEE ALSO
          dd(1)

     BUGS
          Tails relative to the end of the file are treasured up in a
          buffer, and thus are limited in length.  Various kinds of
          anomalous behavior may happen with character special files.
