Watch folder for new file and execute extern program

Hi.
Can anyone guide me on how to minitor a folder for new files? And when
they appear I need to run and externe program with the file just
created (buy a 3rd program).

This is OS-dependend. On Linux, FAM/GAM-server come to mind.

BTW-It helps us out here if you let us know what platform you
are running on (e.g. Windows, Linux, Mac, etc.).
