README

(with-inotify (inot `((,(user-homedir-pathname) ,in-create))) (read-events inot)) blocks $ touch ~/file => (#S(EVENT :WATCH #<WATCH pathname: #P"/home/stas/" mask: (IN-CREATE)> :MASK (IN-CREATE) :COOKIE 0 :NAME "file")) The masks are only printed using names, the actual values are integers. An easy way to check for multiple events: (member (logior in-ignored in-delete-self in-move-self) events :key #'event-mask :test #'logtest) With a timeout: (with-inotify (inotify `(("/tmp/test" ,(logior in-modify in-close)))) (loop for events = (read-events inotify :time-out 1) thereis events do (write-line "timed out"))) timed out timed out $ echo 10 >> /tmp/test => (#S(INOTIFY:EVENT :WATCH #<INOTIFY:WATCH pathname: #P"/tmp/test" mask: (IN-CLOSE-NOWRITE IN-CLOSE-WRITE IN-MODIFY)> :MASK (INOTIFY:IN-MODIFY) :COOKIE 0 :NAME NIL) #S(INOTIFY:EVENT :WATCH #<INOTIFY:WATCH pathname: #P"/tmp/test" mask: (IN-CLOSE-NOWRITE IN-CLOSE-WRITE IN-MODIFY)> :MASK (INOTIFY:IN-CLOSE-WRITE) :COOKIE 0 :NAME NIL))
