less -Sis useful to have horizontal scrolling with arrow keys (like mentioned in Horizontal scrolling in smaller increments with less -S) instead of breaking long lines into multiple lines
less +F, or alternatively
lessand then SHIFT+F, is useful to have less behave like
tail -fwith files being appended in realtime
However it seems impossible to have both at the same time.
Question: Is it possible to have
less (or another tool) display currently-being-appended files in realtime, and also be able to scroll horizontally long lines (instead of breaking lines into multiple lines)?
This question comes from the context of dealing with Putty with a virtual console width of 2000 characters.
