File in a directory

Hi,

I am a newbie in Python (reading Learning Python now) and have no idea
how I should solve the following problem:

In a local directory there are files (all the same type), which are
spooled in that directory through a stream (NFS, FTP or other). Now I
should read the content of that directory to verify if the size and/or
timestamp of one or more files has changed in past 5 minutes. If there
was a change in size wait, otherwise do something with these files.

Has anyone an idea how to solve that with the size or timestamp
verification?

Thank you.
