Feature request: view program output directly

I'd love to be able to use LogFusion to run a program and capture standard output. As an example, let's say I had SSH keys set up to a Linux server. I could then do something like this:

plink userid@server.host.name "tail -f /var/log/messages"

plink would then continuously output /var/log/messages from my remote Linux server to the console (I also have a few other programs that display console output like this).

While I could just output that to a file, then use LogFusion to look at that file, that has two downsides: 1) it now takes two steps to look at that log instead of being able to save it in LogFusion and 2) I'm now putting temp files on disk that I have to clean up and worry about filesize for if things are open too long.

Thoughts? So far this is a great program!

Glad to hear you like LogFusion so far! I've added this to our feature request list, and we'll definitely investigate it further. If we're able to make something like this work, we'll definitely let you know!
