Tail Multiple Logs at Once

If you have the following files in your /log:

/erlang.log.1, /erlang.log.2, /erlang.log.3, /erlang.log.4

And you don’t know which to watch, just tail them all:

$ tail -f log/erlang.log.*

Alternativly, you can pass it multiple files:

$ tail -f log/erlang.log.1 log/erlang.log.2
