[erlang-questions] file systems events mac -> erlang

I want write a backup program for my macbook

Once I have backed up *everything* which takes a while
I then want to backup "changed files." Rather than re-scanning
my entire disk I'd like to be informed when a file changes.

Is there an erlang interface to the "file system events API" in the mac?
(or something like inotify) or a background daemon that writes the names of
all changed files
to a log.
