Directory Watcher
    by Tim Pease
    http://codeforpeople.rubyforge.org/directory_watcher

== DESCRIPTION:

The directory watcher operates by scanning a directory at some interval and
generating a list of files based on a user supplied glob pattern. As the file
list changes from one interval to the next, events are generated and
dispatched to registered observers. Three types of events are supported --
added, modified, and removed.

== FEATURES:

See DirectoryWatcher for detailed documentation and usage.

== REQUIREMENTS:

This is a pure ruby library. There are no requirements for using this code.

== INSTALL:

  sudo gem install directory_watcher

You will need have Mr Bones installed in order to develop or modify directory
watcher.

  sudo gem install bones

== NOTES:

The support for EventMachine based file notifications is fairly new and
experimental. Please feel free to experiment and report any issues on the
github issue tracker.

  http://github.com/TwP/directory_watcher/issues

The support for Rev based file notifications is also fairly new and subject to
the same disclaimer as the EventMachine functionality.
