    file handling

    Hello there,
    i wish to have an event handler, so that every time a file i am monitoring is updated, the handler is invoked as opposed to just polling every so often to see if the file has been updated, is this possible?

    Operating system dependent. Could be a FileSystemWatcher, or FAM.
