Watchr. Node.js file watching that doesn't suck.

Watchr is simple, you call require('watchr').watch(path,function(){console.log('something changed inside the directory')})

To install npm install watchr

It works with node.js 0.4, 0.5 and 0.6. It will use fs.watchFile if available, otherwise it will use (e.g. windows support).

The functionality is currently quite buggy - node.js returns segmentation faults here and there, but that is due to bugs in node.js. Sigh. Anyway, Enjoy.
