Cannot find fanotify in QT 4.8.5 release
I want to make a c++ application that could recursively monitor file changes in a directory in Linux.
In Linux inotify can be used for file monitoring but at a single level. I also found that i can use fanotify to monitor file changes recursively.
I found both inotify header file (sys/inofiy.h and linux/inotify.h) in my QT creator but could not find fanotify header file in my creator.
How can i use fanotify with QT. Does QT support fanotify.
Qt doesn't implement any backend using fanotify. However you can use it directly or implement your own backend using it
Thanks for your reply SGaist
Will QT, in its future versions, use fanotify to monitor a Linux directory recursively.
I don't know. This is more a question for Qt's core developers. You can ask this on the interest mailing list.
