[solved] How to see log in real time?

Hi people

I have a bash script with a line like this:

Code:
python example.py >> log &

But i can't see anything in the log file while python program is running only if the program ends seems to write the log file.

"$ cat log" for example don't show anything until the program ends.

Is there any way that can I read the log file although the program is running ?


Thanks a lot
