It seems to me you probably will either check periodically in the reactor, like this:
def checkFile(): x = os.stat(file) ... reactor.callLater(.5, checkFile)
Or just start another thread like this:
def wakeUp(): (action to take when file changes)
def checker(): while 1: (code that waits for file to change) reactor.callFromThread(wakeUp)

Hello, I'm looking for some example code I can use to build an app from. I need to 'wait' or sleep for new data in a file. Then wake and process the data.
The file is a regular file, not a pipe. It is the output of a existing program (i.e., not mine to modify). Needless to say, the API for hugh. I'm need some help finding the right tools.
