Tail on multiple windows with a ncurses interface

'MultiTail' lets you view one or multiple files like the original tail program. The difference is that it creates multiple windows on your console (with ncurses). You can also merge logfiles and use colors while displaying the logfiles (through regular expressions), for faster recognition of what is important and what not. 'MultiTail' can also filter lines (again with regular expressions). It has interactive menus for editing given regular expressions and deleting and adding windows. One can also have windows with the output of shell scripts and other software. When viewing the output of external software, the program mimics the functionality of tools like 'watch'.
