I am new to linux programming, comming from years of windows development.  Is there a directory/file event facility like .NET has with its "FileSystemWatcher" functionality?

Thanks

You can use Mono's FileSystemWatcher, but there is no general feature that would allow this under Linux. Mono is an open implementation of .NET (http://www.go-mono.com)

lsof (list open files) is the nearest thing I can think of. You can pick any process/user and find out what files are in use including any library files.
