NAME

       ftpwatch - Notifies you of changes on remote ftp servers

SYNOPSIS

       ftpwatch

DESCRIPTION

       ftpwatch  is a program intended to be run as a cron job. Every user who
       wants to use it should install it into his crontab file.  That  is  add
       something like:

           47 5    * * 7 /usr/sbin/ftpwatch

       The  user  should  then  create a .ftpwatchrc file. If one is found the
       specifed files and directories in that file  will  be  dired,  and  the
       result  is stored as separate files in a .ftpwatch directory i the home
       directory.  diff(1) is invoked to find any changes since last  run.  If
       any are found, the output of diff is mailed to the user.

CONFIGURATION FILES

       Each  user  can  place  a  .ftpwatchrc  file in there home directories,
       listing the files or directories they are intrested in. The  format  is
       simpel. Each line of the file is of the following type:

           <Host>:<File>

       Where  <Host>  is the hostname of the ftp server and <File> is the file
       or directory to watch. If you instead want to watch an entire directory
       structure  recoursly  you  can  add  an R to the config line of the dir
       whoes subdirs you are intresed in, like this:

           <Host>:R:<File>
