As I was working on texmake I decided that I didn’t want to figure out what all the possible auxilary output files would be for a latex document. Also, I’m suspecting that it will depend on what packages are included and things. Anyway, I wanted a way to just monitor the build directory and see all the files that were created while running latex. It turns out this is very easy on linux. This is a very simple program which watches a directory, and will print out any files that are created, modified, opened, closed, moved, or deleted. It prints out the file name, followed by a comma, followed by the notification event.

You can find the code in project tracker
