Read the name of a newly added file

December 2, 2012 | 3:23 am

Hey guys! Working on a project where I need to monitor a folder (via file watch currently) and read the name of the most recently added file. I am then parsing the file name, but have this bit down. I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what to do. Did some searching and wasn’t able to turn anything up. Any help?

Hello,
I think you can poll a folder with the [metro] and [folder] object. then get the difference between each polls with [zl.filter].
I hope the following sample patch helps you.
