I get the same behavior. I suspect that it's due to POE::Component::DirWatch's poll routine not opening the directory on every poll, but opening it once and then rewinding it after that. New files never get processed, just the first list of files that were returned on the first poll. I don't know whether to consider this a bug in the POE::Component::DirWatch or Win32's implementation of rewinddir. You could patch the poll routine to open the directory on every poll.

Update: Better yet, it would probably be best to modify the module to use Win32::ChangeNotify on Windows.

Update: Win32::ChangeNotify followup here

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

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
