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

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.
