Activity Monitor
Version 1.3

A simple tool to log disk activity.

	ActivityMonitor - log disk activity.
	[TARGET] {name,...} [LOGFILE {logfilename}] [DATESTAMPLOG] [NOTRANSLATE]



	ActivityMonitor allows you to monitor and log changes to files on your 
	various volumes and devices. What you use this log for is up to you. 
	You might use it to trace the activity of some software, to look out for 
	unexpected changes to sensitive files, or perhaps to monitor you time spent
	working on a project based on the frequency that fils are changed.
	A list of files and or directories to monitor is passed on the command line.
	These must be absolute paths and use the device names of the volumes on 
	which they occur. If the RECURSE switch is added then the all files and 
	directories that start with the path specified will be monitored.
	By default the log is written to the console, you may specify a specific 
	file with the LOGFILE keyword. This file will never be monitored to avoid 
	any potential infinite loops! Add the DATESTAMPLOGS switch to have the date
	added to the logfilename in the format "logfile_YYYYMMDD". NOTRANSLATE 
	disables localization for the log entries and they will be logged in 
	English. This is to simplify processing of the logs, without needing to also
	localise your perl/python/arexx scripts :-)
	The PREFSFILE option is current unimplemented.
	Example usage: add the following to your user-startup sequence. 
	(all one line) To monitor all chnages in the directory DH5:Projects and 
	below and log it to work:temp/Activity.log_20190522 etc etc
	Run <NIL: >NIL: Appdir:ActivityMonitor LOGFILE Work:temp/Activity.log 


	A couple of example script are included in the distribution to demonstrate
	usage for monitor activity / time spent on projects...

	accuracy. If after analyzing the logs you find you spend much to much time 
	on your Amiga don't go blaming me!
