Read Logs with Less

Browsing through log files, especially when they contain Java Stacktraces is sometimes a bit cumbersome. With less it's a bit more comfortable:

  • <-> + <S> to Chop long lines.
  • <shift> + <f> to enter follow mode
  • <ctrl> + <c> to exit follow mode

  • <g> to jump to the beginning of the logfile

  • <shit> + <g> to jump to the end of the logfile

Just less trouble with log files ;-)
