Default Possibly dumb question re inotify

Greetings all;

I have a need to detect the creation of a file, and gather stat data on it so that appropriate action can then be taken.

That means inotify I believe, so my question is 2 parts:

1. Can I use it from a bash script?

If yes, then:

2. Where might I find a tut on how?

Thanks all.


Cheers, Gene
