in reply to Multiplatform event handling module?

For linux there is Linux::Inotify2 it interfaces with a kernel-level event notification subsystem. A potential multiplatform solution is File::Monitor a quick look at that module suggests you need to call a scan() method manually for polling.

    I know you didn't mention Win32, but this looks like an equivalent mechanism on windows. I don't think there's a direct perl interface to this, though it should be fairly straightforward to implement.
