NAME
     filewatcherd -- run commands in response to file changes

SYNOPSIS
     filewatcherd [-dh]	[-w delay_ms] watchtab

DESCRIPTION
     filewatcherd is a daemon inspired by cron,	that run commands based	on
     file changes instead of time.  In principle it is similar to incron, but
     it's simpler, more	limited, and does not depend on	anything outside of
     FreeBSD base.

     watchtab describes	which paths and	what events to watch, and commands to
     run when triggered.

     -d, --foreground
	  Don't	fork to	background and log to stderr.

     -h, --help
	  Display help text.

     -w	delay_ms, --wait delay_ms
	  Wait that number of milliseconds after watchtag changes before
	  reloading it.
