Trying to figure out how to do a single line cmd (it should be
possible right??) to do a tail -5 for a list of files???
I thought I could combine find with exec/xargs and tail to generate
the list of files/tail data.. But couldn't figure out the syntax..
find /foo -name "*dog.dat ... tail -5 << obviously not correct.
what would work?
I think the easy way is
$ find /foo -name "*dog.dat" | xargs tail -n5
or am I missing something?
