default output is last 10 lines
    -n# - display last # lines
    -v  - display header

./tail file              --displays last 10 lines of the file, all lines of the file if there is < 10 lines
./tail file -v           --displays file name, and then displays last 10 lines of the file
./tail file -n#          --displays last # lines of file.

./tail file -v -n#       --displays file name, then last # lines of file
