What is treewatch?

treewatch is a simple program to watch a set of directories and execute a program when there is a change in the files within the directories.

If run with no options it will watch the current directory for changes in .c, .cpp and .h files and execute /usr/bin/make on changes.

This example will run /bin/echo with the options "hello world" when files with ending .txt are modified in the current directory.:

treewatch -c /bin/echo -o "hello world" -f .txt
