Nope, this is a GNU extension to fcntl. File change notifications are done with EVFILT_VNODE using kqueue(2). Directory changes have no interface that I know of. You might wanna take a look at how devel/gamin handles this, specifically the kqueue implementation. -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
