in thread File::Monitor problem with batch files

Finally, it worked! I tried like this use the file::monitor::delta package:

use File::Monitor; use File::Copy::Recursive qw(fcopy rcopy dircopy fmove rmove dirmove); my $monitor = File::Monitor->new(); # Watch some files for my $file (qw( 1.doc 2.xls)) { $monitor->watch( $file ); } # First scan just finds out about the monitored files. No changes # will be reported. #$object->scan; while (1) { $monitor->scan; sleep 10; # After the first scan we get a list of File::Monitor::Delta objec +ts # that describe any changes my @changes = $monitor->scan; for my $change (@changes) { # Call methods on File::Monitor::Delta to discover what change +d if ($change->is_mtime) { my $name = $change->name; my $old_mtime = $change->old_mtime; my $new_mtime = $change->new_mtime; print "$name changed at $new_mtime\n"; fcopy ("$name","p:\\phdpaper"); #backup automatically for +the file which just has been modified } } }

Thank you for your help!

[Corion]: ... should create that Change.
[Corion]: The nicer approach maybe would have been to indirectly tell them that, or tell them who could teach them...
