inotify-win

A port of the inotifywait tool for Windows, see https://github.com/rvoicilas/inotify-tools

Compiling

If you have Cygwin installed, just run make in this directory. This will create the executable, inotifywait.exe.

Manual complilation goes as follows:

$ %WINDIR%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\csc.exe /t:exe /out:inotifywait.exe src\*.cs
Microsoft (R) Visual C# 2010 Compiler Version 4.0.30319.1

Usage

The command line arguments are similar to the original one's:

$ inotifywait.exe
Usage: inotifywait [options] path [...]

Options:
-r/--recursive:  Recursively watch all files and subdirectories inside path
-m/--monitor:    Keep running until killed (e.g. via Ctrl+C)
-q/--quiet:      Do not output information about actions
-e/--event list: Events (create, modify, delete, move) to watch, comma-separated. Default: all
--format format: Format string for output.
--exclude:       Do not process any events whose filename matches the specified regex
--excludei:      Ditto, case-insensitive

Formats:
%e             : Event name
%f             : File name
%w             : Path name
%T             : Current date and time

Known issues

When moving files, not all events are reported consistently with the original. See issue #7 for an explanation. Pull requests welcome!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
