WaitNotify compiled for AROS (i386) without any modification to the original
source. Notification works currently (06/nov/2007) (and WaitNotify can be used)
perfectly well with SFS drives, and almost perfectly with Ram Disk (the only
problem here is that the file must exist before the call to the StartNotify()
function), it should be working with FAT drives too (untested) but it doesn't
work with AFS drives.
Thanks to Tobias Ferber for having GPL'ed this useful tool, and
thanks to Robert Norris for all his works on AROS (notification is one thing
between others), and of course thanks to the AROS Team!
WaitNotify -- Wait for a file or directory modification
WaitNotify posts a notification request on the given files
or directories. The command will not return until at least
one of them has been modified. For files, it will return
after the file is closed.
The optional format string will be printed when the file or
directory changes. The first "%s" in it will be replaced by
NAME - name of the files or directories which you want
QUIET - suppresses warnings and error messages (but sets
the return value to allow later diagnostis
FORMAT - string to print on exit.
;Wait for a change in our startup-sequence
;Wait for a change in either startup script and report its name
WaitNotify S:Startup-Sequence S:User-Startup FMT="%s*N"
;Show the first file which changes via More

Not all filesystems will support file notification. In particular,
most network filesystems won't support it.
