Re: how to permanently monitor a directory
in thread how to permanently monitor a directory
The comment on the
unless $notify->wait( 10_000 );
line is misleading. The script doesn't check for changes every ten seconds. It waits for a change for 10 seconds, prints the "Nothing changed" message and goes back waiting. Any changes in the directories are noted immediately.
Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code
will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live.
