I know that title may not make complete sense, but here is what I am wondering can be done.
A part of my company has a few servers that update files when their application is working properly.
They want to monitor those files for data being written to them in fairly real-time.
I tried the native tail command, but that reads the entire file at first, so that was not ideal.
I found the codeplex community powershell extension that updated tail and made it work more like the Unix tail command.
What I would like to do is leverage PS multithreading and have 4 sections of the shell window  display the changes on the 4 files, if that is possible....
