Hi all! I'm trying to synchronize two folders and their sub directories between a client and a server. I have a modified version of this class which I've posted below. In my Client class, I create a WatchDir object and call its processEvents() method in an infinite loop. The method returns a myTuple object (a struct containing the event type and a path object) if an event is registered and null if not. The problem is that this only seems to work for the first event to happen in the directory (i.e. if I add a file to the watched folder, my WatchDir object.processEvents() returns one Tuple with an ENTRY_CREATE event and never returns another Tuple for other file additions/deletions/modifications that happen after). I'd like for processEvents to be continuously called (hence the infinite while) returning a Tuple each time some event occurs. Thanks for any help!
