I am constantly checking logs when software testing. Some software creates a new log file every time there is an new event. This sends me crosseyed trying to figure out which is the latest log that I want to view.
Here is the trick
type “ls -ltr”
l = List (Single column and easy to view)
t = Sort by time
r = Reverse the order of the search (So that the log you want is listed last, just above your prompt)
