comment Make emacs aware of files externally moved/renamed on Mac os x
asking the same question on IRC channel #emacs yielded thoughts about Cocoa implementing file access in a quite high-level manner (and in particular offering this file-following feature for free). I've never written any objective-C, nor do I know whether Textmate is implemented in o-C, but I now suppose that there is no hope to do any file-following on mac os x outside of Cocoa. Too bad for emacs !

also, I realized that this question could also belong on apple.stackexchange.com but I'm not quite sure about what is the right way to cross-post a question.

that's a real shame, as I suspect the file-following magic of mac os x is probably "only" implemented as some cocoa notification callback: "native" applications should all implement it, especially those who pretend to be programmer-oriented !
