yes.
You could have perl keep a text file with a list of all the files you are tracking with their last modification date then check the actual modification date of a file to see when it has last been changed if it is newer than the date it keepin in the list than it would trigger a mail list engine.

However I have found it is better to manually trigger the mail engine.  Lets say you correct a typo or make some other minor modification to the file, well everyone is gonna get emailed to check out your new site and then be pretty dissapointed when they arrive.

Here is a FREE mail engine.
