Author/Contact Info Jason L. Froebe
Description: The examples in Linux::Inotify2 are for Event, Glib::IO and a manual loop. With the help of rcaputo, tye and Animator, I was able to get Linux::Inotify2 to work with POE. :)
#!/usr/bin/perl

use strict;
use warnings;

use Linux::Inotify2;
use POE;

$|++;

POE::Session->create
  ( inline_states =>
      { _start => sub {
            $_[KERNEL]->alias_set('notify');
            $_[HEAP]{inotify} = new Linux::Inotify2
              or die "Unable to create new inotify object: $!";

            $_[HEAP]{inotify}->watch("/tmp/j", IN_CLOSE_WRITE, $_[SESS
+ION]->postback("watch_hdlr"))
              or die "Unable to watch dir: $!";

            my $inotify_FH;
            open $inotify_FH, "<&=" . $_[HEAP]{inotify}->fileno or die
+ "Can't fdopen: $!\n";
            $_[KERNEL]->select_read( $inotify_FH, "inotify_poll" );
        },
        inotify_poll => sub {
          $_[HEAP]{inotify}->poll;
        },
        watch_hdlr => \&watch_hdlr,
      },
  );

sub watch_hdlr {
  my $event = $_[ARG1][0];

  my $name = $event->fullname;

  print "$name was accessed\n" if $event->IN_ACCESS;
  print "$name is no longer mounted\n" if $event->IN_UNMOUNT;
  print "$name is gone\n" if $event->IN_IGNORED;
  print "$name is new\n" if $event->IN_CLOSE_WRITE;
  print "events for $name have been lost\n" if $event->IN_Q_OVERFLOW;
}

POE::Kernel->run();

exit 0;
