README.md

Sentinel is a small VBScript that watches a given directory for changes in overall file size, and runs another program when a change is detected. It is intended to automate tasks such as web development; by specifying a file copy script as the action, files can automatically be transferred as soon as changes are made.

This will eventually be rewritten in something a little more robust and cross-platform compatible (i.e. Perl).

#Usage instructions usage: Sentinel.vbs directory action

  directory: the directory to watch
  action:    the script or program to execute when changes are
             detected.
