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.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.

  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr

    [Eily]: I've posted my fourth root node on perlmonks and I haven't even been a monk for four years yet. I'm on fire \o/
    [ambrus]: Eily: hmm... do you count your user and your scratchpad as root nodes you posted?
    [Eily]: I would have if it had been convenient :P
    [hippo]: Those are auto-posted. We just update them.
    [LanX]: "you haven't been a monk" ???
    [LanX]: oh "yet" .. got it
    [Eily]: LanX: sadly I wasn't born a monk
