      Description

      There are certain uncharacterized situations where tail may reset and cause large numbers of duplicates. A current work-around is to use exec("tail -F <file>") instead of tail/tailDir. This jira would ideally create a (platform-specific) mechanism to properly tail a file by going to jni or executing processes under the covers while preserving the tail/tailDir api.

        This implements tail using a inode based API.
