That would be just a drop in the bucket. Don't do that for me. I want it to ignore the file if I so choose (let it have a manual "reload" option). If simply looking at a (small) file as it was when it was read is impossible, that would seem a lack of functionality.

What's up with turning "tail" on/off? That seems to get rid of the monitoring (a bug?). Apparently the ability to turn it off is already there.


To be more precise, apparently the ability to turn file monitoring is already there.

No. This is a bug.

Although tailing has been turned off, V still thinks that it is turned on and so does not reload the file (as it thinks that
the tailing code will take care of it).

The bug is harmless when viewing small files. However, for larger files (over 64K), it can lead to the file display being corrupted or even
cause V to crash - it will have to be fixed in the next release.
