    polling a particular directory, retrieving only new files

      I have a requirement of polling a particular directory, and retrieving all new files posted. Say, i have a file called file1 in a particular directory, i keep polling the same directory every "n" minutes or even seconds, and will try to fetch file1 only when there is a semaphore file called file1.ready exists for file1.
      This is in Solaris.
      How can this be implemented?. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
