14.2 > Development > watchman (4.9.0)

Watchman exists to watch files and record when they change. It can also
trigger actions (such as rebuilding assets) when matching files change.


- Watchman can recursively watch one or more directory trees (we call
them roots).

- Watchman does not follow symlinks. It knows they exist, but they show
up the same as any other file in its reporting.

- Watchman waits for a root to settle down before it will start to
trigger notifications or command execution.

- Watchman is conservative, preferring to err on the side of caution;
it considers files to be freshly changed when you start to watch them
or when it is unsure.

- You can query a root for file changes since you last checked, or the
current state of the tree.

- You can subscribe to file changes that occur in a root.

Note: this is not the latest version of watchman. Newer versions
require newer libraries than Slackware 14.2 has, so this build can't
be upgraded.
