I hope this is the right place to post this question.I'm running Puppy Linux 
4.0 and have run into a problem with their version of tail not supporting the 
--byte option. I have to use -c instead. Is this because it's not a standard 
GNU version of tail? Is there a version of GNU tail that doesn't support the -c 
option? I ask because I want to know if it's safe to switch from the --byte 
option to the -c option in a script and still have it be portable across all
