Projects / filewatcher


filewatcher is a Perl program that uses RCS to maintain a local file archive repository. A configuration file details which files and directories to monitor and to whom reports should be delivered.

    Release Notes: A bug in function references was fixed. An RPM spec file and a sample configuration for inclusion with an RPM were added.

    •  13 Apr 2005 07:30

      Release Notes: This version adds two new report output methods, stdout and fd. stdout can be used to dump the entire change report to standard output. fd can be used to report on a per-file and per-title basis to different open file descriptors. The Mail:: Internet module has been made optional as well, and is needed only if the mailto report method is used.

        Release Notes: A new 'transform-report' option leaves the archived file intact and only changes the report content. The 'mailto-subject' option has been replaced with 'title'. A '%f' interpolation variable has been added that expands to the name of the current configuration file. The default 'title' value is now "[%h] filewatcher %f report". Distinct reports are now mailed based on a combination of notify and title values rather than just notify.

          Release Notes: The "mailto-subject" global option was added to enable definition of the string sent as the subject for email notifications.

          •  23 Nov 2003 08:06

            Release Notes: This version adds a 'send-changes' per-file option to enable suppression of detailed file change reports (useful for sensitive files), and adds a 'transform' global directive and 'apply-transform' per-file option to enable simple editing of files prior to check in (useful to remove or replace data within files for security reasons or due to spurious changes, such as date stamps).
