inotify-tools 3.13 deb package for Ubuntu and Debian

inotify-tools is set of programs to help you monitor/watch files when they are created, modified, deleted, open for read/write, etc… and notifies you. Those tools can be very useful for admins or for developpers of bash scripts for example.

They are very easy to use and only needs a few libraries (only 2 I think!) to work.

I’ve packaged the new version 3.13 for Ubuntu and Debian.

Here are the links for inotify-tools 3.13 deb packages:

Important: you need to install the lib (libinotifytools0) first!

Here’s an example of output:

$ inotifywait -m -r --format ' %w %:e %f'  ~/tmp
Setting up watches.  Beware: since -r was given, this may take a while!
Watches established.
