fwtchrq: files watcher
fwtchrq is a tool from the Epeios project which watches files and directories from a given path and reports their modifications.
Besides files modifications, it also reports moving, renaming, creation and deletion of directories.
It makes use of task parallelism to be as fast as possible, notably when exploring the content of a directory and its sub-directories.
fwtchrq works with GNU/Linux (and probably other POSIX compliant operating systems), macOS and Windows, on IA-32, AMD64 and ARM (AArch32 and AArch64, like those on Raspberry Pi, Banana Pi, ODROID… devices) architectures.
See the compilation dedicated page to see how to obtain the binaries.
Two files called
fwtchrq.xlcl have to be in the same directory as the one containing the binary.
See the configuration dedicated page.
