peter@joule:~$ incrontab -l
/home/peter/test IN_MODIFY touch ~/indicator 2>&1
Then according to my thinking, sending a fresh copy of test
to Joule using FTP, should trigger "touch ~/indicator". If
there is no pre-existing indicator, then an empty file should
be created. Doesn't work. A detail which bothers me is
the absence of connected terminal for stdout and stderr.
Is that the problem? Is it elsewhere?
Thanks, ... Peter E.
