I don't think there's an operating-specific signal/event for this: you
can poll the modification time on POSIX systems, though.<br>

  <br>
This time I've done my research, but still I cannot find a good
answer.&nbsp;&nbsp; Basically, I need to make a little ocaml process, which runs
in the background and monitors a specific file for changes.&nbsp;&nbsp; When a
change occurs, I want it to back-up a copy of the version of the file
at that moment.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; So, what I need is to set some signal or event,
which will happen every time that file is changed.

  <br>
Can you guys help me do it?<br>
  <br>
Thank you in advance!<br>

PS. If in any way I'm misusing this list (writing too much, or out of
topic), please tell me, because I just don't know it.&nbsp; The least I want
is to spam the list with improper questions.
