Tailbeep opens a file (-f), seeks to the end, and watches for a string (-s). If the string is found, a beep is sent to the specified tty (-t) device. You can also daemonize (-d) it. I wrote it so I could watch /var/log/messages for the DENY string (so I can tell if someone is trying to break into the firewall.) 0.3 adds speech and debugging. 0.41 adds the ability to speak a predefined message OR say the watched line, and -V (version) information. Tested under linux, perhaps someone can port it to other UNIX variants??
