    XMetaL unaware of changes on filesystem

    Since XMetaL does not support search/replace across multiple files, our authors often use extenal tools to perform batch search/replace operations. If a file is open in XMetaL when the external tool performs the search/replace, XMetaL is unaware that the file on the filesystem has changed.

    Does anyone have a customization script that, when a file obtains focus in XMetal, checks the file on the filesystem for changes and offers the option to reload the file?

    Thank you for your help.

    Paul
