SYNOPSIS

filewatcherd [-dh] [-w delay_ms] watchtab

DESCRIPTION

filewatcherd is a daemon inspired by cron, that run commands based on file changes instead of time. In principle it is similar to incron, but it’s simpler, more limited, and does not depend on anything outside of FreeBSD base.

watchtab describes which paths and what events to watch, and commands to run when triggered.

OPTIONS

The following options are supported by filewatcherd:
-d -, --foreground
  Don’t fork to background and log to stderr.
-h -, --help
  Display help text.
-w delay_ms, --wait delay_ms
  Wait that number of milliseconds after watchtag changes before reloading it.
