Hotfolder class

Pieter;

I've attached a class that I wrote that will work for you.  You'll have to
call it in a loop with the .check() method, but it will automatically find
all new (and STABLE) files, and return the full filenames to you for
processing.

The good feature of this is that it separtes STABLE files from UNSTABLE
files, and returns both lists.  This way, a file that is in the process of
being saved in your hotfolder will not be accidentally processed before its
finished.

Let me know what you think...

Kevin Cazabon.

BTW:  You wouldn't happen to work for "The" CREO, would you?  I mean the CTP
manufacturer... because I'd have to revoke this message then, I work for
Cymbolic Sciences!  q:]  Just kidding...
