FileSystemWatcher is a plugin for Xojo to set up file system watches on specific folder or folders.
The plugin can for example monitor when files are dropped into the folder or removed from the folder.
The plugin was supposed to fully abstract the platforms and be seamless across them. This however was not possible since the File system monitoring API’s across platforms were very different with very different limitations.
For example then Linux does not support recursive watches, MacOS X does not support non recursive watches, and Windows supports both. Those are the kind of limitations we have to work with.
All of the operating systems in some way warn against putting a watch high up on the root or watch directories where you will have huge number of activity. And that the watches will not always give accurate results and there will be times where you need to do full directory scan to be sure.
