- Subject: less locks the file
When using less to follow a log file (less +F logfile.log), this file is
locked. So when I restart the application, it cannot delete this locked
log file and create a new one. So I always have to quit less, before
restarting the app, which I of course forget like every 2nd time... less
does not lock on linux.
Is there any way I could tell less not to lock the file?
