This can be specified more than once for multiple disabled files or comma/semi-comma seperated -v --verbose Show more detailed option --VERSION Prints the version information --help Prints this help information --man Prints the full documentation for tailt PLUGINS: -h --highlight Sets up the hightlight plugin options -m --match Sets up the match plugin option to only show lines that natch the regexp. -i --ignore Sets up the ignore plugin options to hide all lines that match the regexp. -r --replace Sets op the replace plugin option which chnages match values. --spacing key=value
You can specify local files either relatively or absolutely. Remote files uses a vim like syntax for specifying remote files, it uses the ssh protocol which may mean that you may have issues if you don't use ssh keys. The format for the URI is:
Note if you want a absolute file location you must have two slashes at the start of the path. One slash means that the file is relative to the user that you are logging in as.
Stores the saved configuration options (stored in YAML format)
