Directory/File Events

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?

Karl Heinz KremerCommented:
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.
