print texts file to the console window in realtime, how?
 
Hello,

how can I see text file in my gnome console window - no like cat command do but some real time, non-stop prints.

For example: syslog writes to log and I can see this log and every new line which will appear in it by conf. syslog but I want to have possibility to view in my console every txt file in this way.

Best Regards.
