NAME

File::ChangeNotify - Watch for changes to files, cross-platform style

CONTENTS

VERSION

version 0.24

SYNOPSIS



    use File::ChangeNotify;

    my $watcher =
        File::ChangeNotify->instantiate_watcher
            ( directories => [ /my/path, /my/other ],
              filter      => qr/\.(?:pm|conf|yml)$/,
            );

    if ( my @events = $watcher->new_events() ) { ... }

    # blocking
    while ( my @events = $watcher->wait_for_events() ) { ... }



DESCRIPTION

This module provides an API for creating a File::ChangeNotify::Watcher subclass that will work on your platform.

Most of the documentation for this distro is in File::ChangeNotify::Watcher.

METHODS

This class provides the following methods:

    File::ChangeNotify->instantiate_watcher(...)

This method looks at each available subclass of File::ChangeNotify::Watcher and instantiates the first one it can load, using the arguments you provided.

It always tries to use the File::ChangeNotify::Watcher::Default class last, on the assumption that any other class that is available is a better option.

File::ChangeNotify->usable_classes()

Returns a list of all the loadable File::ChangeNotify::Watcher subclasses.

BUGS

Please report any bugs or feature requests to bug-file-changenotify@rt.cpan.org, or through the web interface at <http://rt.cpan.org>. I will be notified, and then you’ll automatically be notified of progress on your bug as I make changes.

DONATIONS

If you’d like to thank me for the work I’ve done on this module, please consider making a donation to me via PayPal. I spend a lot of free time creating free software, and would appreciate any support you’d care to offer.

Please note that <B>I am not suggesting that you must do thisB> in order for me to continue working on this particular software. I will continue to do so, inasmuch as I have in the past, for as long as it interests me.

Similarly, a donation made in this way will probably not make me work on this software much more, unless I get so many donations that I can consider working on free software full time, which seems unlikely at best.

To donate, log into PayPal and send money to autarch@urth.org or use the button on this page: <http://www.urth.org/~autarch/fs-donation.html>
