INOTIFY_INIT(2)		   Linux Programmer's Manual	       INOTIFY_INIT(2)

       inotify_init, inotify_init1 - initialize an inotify instance

       #include <sys/inotify.h>

       int inotify_init(void);
       int inotify_init1(int flags);

       inotify_init()  initializes  a  new inotify instance and returns a file
       descriptor associated with a new inotify event queue.

       If flags is 0, then inotify_init1() is the same as inotify_init().  The
       following  values  can  be  bitwise  ORed  in flags to obtain different

       IN_NONBLOCK Set the O_NONBLOCK file status flag on the  new  open  file
		   description.	 Using this flag saves extra calls to fcntl(2)
		   to achieve the same result.

       IN_CLOEXEC  Set the close-on-exec (FD_CLOEXEC) flag  on	the  new  file
		   descriptor.	 See  the description of the O_CLOEXEC flag in
		   open(2) for reasons why this may be useful.

       On success, these system calls return a new file descriptor.  On error,
       -1 is returned, and errno is set to indicate the error.

       EINVAL (inotify_init1()) An invalid value was specified in flags.

       EMFILE The user limit on the total number of inotify instances has been

       ENFILE The system limit on the total number  of	file  descriptors  has
	      been reached.

       ENOMEM Insufficient kernel memory is available.

       inotify_init()  first  appeared	in  Linux  2.6.13; library support was
       added to glibc in version 2.4.	inotify_init1()	 was  added  in	 Linux
       2.6.27; library support was added to glibc in version 2.9.

       These system calls are Linux-specific.
