A few days ago I asked Is there a way to make tail -F beep?
Now I want to know if there is any way to use *nix utilities, to beep when a
tail -F stops returning new lines for a while!
I know, I can write a simple application in any language to do this, but I was curious to know if there is a way to do this just by standard (or semi standard) utils.
The goals is to beep when a file (like a log file) no longer grows.
