John Pitman asked if there's a way to get proximate results to the "tail -f"
command.

Robert W. Mills replied:
Try:
rint ONNNN.OUT.HPSPOOL;START=nnnn

where ONNNN is the spoolfile id and nnnn is the number of record you want to
see counting from the end of the file.

To which I add:

You can use a text editor to text in the file and then list the last 'n'
lines, e.g.:
:EDITOR
T Onnnn.OUT.HPSPOOL,UNN
L LAST-20/LAST

or

:SPIFF
T Onnnn
L LAST-20/LAST

Using the spooler utility SPIFF has the added benefit of removing any nasty
side effects of carriage control or escape sequence characters that may be
embedded in the spool file from messing with your terminal emulator settings
and display.
