Re: Enhancement request: Watch source files for changes

I'm just another make user.

I like the idea - some operating systems have change notification
mechanisms.  One could use this for a kind of continuous integration -
rebuilding files as they are changed or checked in.

Putting make in an internal loop would be pointless - one might as
well write the script.

It would be really efficient for make to act as a kind of continuously
running dependency database, where you could tell it about changes and
it would recompute actions.

I am not an expert on the source code but I think it is a fairly large
change to try to apply to make.
