Projects / incron


incron is an "inotify cron" system. It works like the regular cron but is driven by filesystem events instead of time periods. It contains two programs, a daemon called "incrond" (analogous to crond) and a table manipulator "incrontab" (like "crontab").

            Great idea, keep up the good work. The incrontab syntax seems too obscure (like a distant relative of regex), but I'll give it a try for a while and then I'll be able to formulate a better opinion.
