tail() function

tail() limits each output table to the last n rows.

tail() produces one output table for each input table. Each output table contains the last n records before the offset. If the input table has less than offset + n records, tail() outputs all records before the offset.

Function type signature
(<-tables: stream[A], n: int, ?offset: int) => stream[A]
For more information, see Function type signatures.
