Text File Watcher

Text File Watcher is a utility that allows you to monitor a text file to see its contents live. As the contents of the file are changed, the viewer inside will automatically update to show them. Therefore you do need need to force any refresh. Text File Watcher will not lock the file being viewed so that it can continue to be modified by other applications.

Awesome thank you. Text File Watcher does exactly what I want it to do. As another program I'm running updates a text file the changes to that text file are automatically displayed in Text File Watcher. I couldn't be happier. Thanks again.
