I had not previously seen/heard of Elliot. However, during a comparison Elliot was unable to detect the following file creations, which is what I originally wrote this program for, to aid me in the hackerslab contest last year.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>

int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
unlink("tmp/1");
symlink("tmp/2", "tmp/1");
unlink("tmp/1");

unlink("tmp/a_file");
symlink("tmp/a_link", "tmp/a_file");
unlink("tmp/a_file");

unlink("tmp/another_file");
symlink("tmp/another_link", "tmp/another_file");
unlink("tmp/another_file");
}

Directory watcher looks a lot like Eliott :

Eliott is more agressive and faster because it uses the dnotify API. But it only works with Linux.
