Help with auto-detect new files/folders then zip and move script

Hello,

I need a simple script to Auto-detect new files and folders in the directory.

And then I need to zip the new files and bzip2 new folders and move them out of that folder where I am detecting changes to the other folder.

Remember, I need simple one. If anyone could do it fast, I may "show" my thankfulness with numbers (not much though, couze I am student) Smilie

First off, our help is for free.

Secondly, you gave it away yourself: most probably this is not a real-world-problem, but homework - which is forbidden here. There is a special forum for that and you should go there.
