Is there a program like multitail but for Windows cmd.exe or powershell (not GUI)?

It has a GUI but is the only "ready-to-use" tool I know of with multi-log file support: tail for Win32.

Features:

A few features of Tail:

Watch multiple files in realtime

Detect keyword matches, and highlight occurences

Send mail notifications on keyword matches by SMTP or MAPI

Plugin architecture allows you to write specialised handlers

Can process files of any size on all types of drive (local or networked)

This seems like a GUI app: tailforwin32.sourceforge.net/screenshots.php –  Sridhar Ratnakumar Jan 12 '10 at 6:19

That's why I began my answer with: "It has a GUI but" –  Gerd Klima Jan 12 '10 at 8:55

Check this question http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4426442/unix-tail-equivalent-command-in-windows-powershell, they talk about the GetFileTail function of PSCX, give it a try..
