Dircond is a directory content watcher daemon, i.e. a program that
monitors a set of directories on the file system and reacts when
-their content changes. The following changes are monitored: file
-creation, file removal, file update, move of a file between
-directories. When a change is detected, the daemon reacts by invoking
-an external command configured for that kind of change.
+their content changes. When a change is detected, the daemon reacts by
+invoking an external command configured for that kind of change.
+
+The program aims to provide a uniform and system-independent
+command-level interface for file system events. This version
+is known to work on GNU/Linux (kernels starting from
+v. 2.6.13) and BSD systems (FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Darwin).
* Building and Configuring
-The utility is Linux-specific, therefore no configuration script is
-provided. Run 'make' to build the program, and run 'make install' as a
-superuser to install it. The utility name is 'dircond' and it is
-installed in /usr/local/bin. To change the installation directory, use
-the PREFIX make variable. For example, the following command:
+The usual incantation applies:
+
+ ./configure [OPTIONS]
+ make
+ make install
+
+See the file INSTALL for the description of ./configure and its
+generic options.
- make install PREFIX=/usr
+* Usage Instructions
-will install the daemon binary in /usr/bin and the manpage in
-/usr/share/man/man1.
+Complete documentation is included with the package, both in man
+and Texinfo formats. After successful installation, use
-Specific installation directories can be overridden using the
-following variables:
+ info dircond
- BINDIR the directory where the binary is to be installed
- MANDIR the directory where the manpage is to be installed
+to read the Texinfo documentation. To read the manpages, use:
-* Usage Instructions
+ man 8 dircond
+ man 5 dircond.conf
-See dircond(1) for a detailed documentation.
+An online copy of the documentation in various formats is available
+at http://dircond.man.gnu.org.ua.
