I decided to do exactly that, and started looking at the code. It looks like it should already be ignoring files that end in a ~. However, on my version it's not. In inotify.c, around line 236 is the following code block: /* ignore emacs backups and dotfiles */ if (in->len == 0 || in->name[in->len - 1] == '~' || (in->name == '#' && in->name[in->len - 1] == '#') || in->name == '.') continue; However, if I create a file called 'fred~' in the directory I've specified using dhcp-hostsdir I still get an event in syslog that shows this file is being processed: Feb 11 11:14:34 xcp-gateway dnsmasq: inotify, new or changed file /etc/dnsmasq/dhcp-hosts.d/fred~ This suggest that either I'm reading the code incorrectly (perfectly possible!) or that the code isn't doing what it is supposed to do? Which is it? Anyone? Thanks Andy _______________________________________________ Dnsmasq-discuss mailing list Dnsmasqemail@example.com http://lists.thekelleys.org.uk/mailman/listinfo/dnsmasq-discuss
