How Can I Easily Determine If A File Has been Added to a Directory

I am uploading files that need to be processed prior to uploading. I will put the files in a directory. My question is how can I write an easy process to kick off a script once a file has been added? Is there an easy way to determine if a file has been added to a directory?

Thanks

CURLOPT_INFILESIZE_LARGE(3)				     curl_easy_setopt options				       CURLOPT_INFILESIZE_LARGE(3)

NAME
CURLOPT_INFILESIZE_LARGE - set size of the input file to send off SYNOPSIS
#include <curl/curl.h> CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_INFILESIZE_LARGE, curl_off_t filesize); DESCRIPTION
When uploading a file to a remote site, filesize should be used to tell libcurl what the expected size of the input file is. This value must be passed as a curl_off_t. For uploading using SCP, this option or CURLOPT_INFILESIZE(3) is mandatory. To unset this value again, set it to -1. When sending emails using SMTP, this command can be used to specify the optional SIZE parameter for the MAIL FROM command. This option does not limit how much data libcurl will actually send, as that is controlled entirely by what the read callback returns, but telling one value and sending a different amount may lead to errors. DEFAULT
Unset PROTOCOLS
Many EXAMPLE
CURL *curl = curl_easy_init(); if(curl) { curl_off_t uploadsize = FILE_SIZE; curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "ftp://example.com/destination.tar.gz"); curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_UPLOAD, 1L); curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_INFILESIZE_LARGE, uploadsize); curl_easy_perform(curl); } AVAILABILITY
SMTP support added in 7.23.0 RETURN VALUE
Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not. SEE ALSO
CURLOPT_INFILESIZE(3), CURLOPT_UPLOAD(3), libcurl 7.54.0 February 03, 2016 CURLOPT_INFILESIZE_LARGE(3)
