scalable directory and file change notification


inotify (inode notify) is a Linux kernel subsystem that monitors events in filesystems and reports those events to applications in real time.

inotify can be used to monitor individual files or directories. When a directory is monitored, inotify will return events for the directory itself and for files inside the directory.

This module implements an interface to the Linux 2.6.13 and later inotify directory and file change notification system.

It has a number of advantages over the Linux::Inotify module:
  - It is portable (Linux::Inotify only works on x86).
  - The equivalent of fullname works correctly.
  - It is better documented.
  - It has callback-style interface, which is better suited for integration.
