[ Thanks to Amy Newman for this link. ]

"What's MultiTail? It's an ncurses utility that can display multiple files using 'windows' (much like GNU Screen or Tmux) in a terminal or at the console. It also supports color highlighting, filtering and much more.

"To get MultiTail, head over to the download page or see if your operating system already has packages. On Debian-based systems, you should need to look for only the multitail package. The project released an update (5.2.8) on April 14, so the most recent release probably won't be in your upstream package repo just yet."
