I think that there are escape characters to give it some format... which application do you recomend to see them correctly in Windows?

Re: Log format

The simplest answer to your question is: use tail from within the Linux command line (below example for 200 lines).

tail -n200 /scratch/XSI/XSIBackup-DC/var/log/xsibackup.log

Nonetheless there is a conceptual flaw on your question, as an editor has been made to visualize contents in text files, not to interpret them.

You would need some kind of visualizer, like a browser displays (interprets) HTML whereas an editor shows the actual HTML markup.
This post will help you address the issue.
