in reply to Watching a driectory for change

Thanks a lot guys, changenotify is great. How I was doing it at the moment was running a script that would check the directory to see if there was any content every 5 minutes and then take the files. The files were being put there by ftp. Thanks again, I think I am going to play with changenotify for a while

    If you actually want to get just the files that have changed, look into Win32::AdvNotify

    However be aware that it needs a console window to operate correctly.
