At the change of one or more files, the atchange program will wake up and do
any actions you want.  Tasks such as modifying and compiling a program,
modifying a data file and using it or editing a text and typesetting it can
be automated with a single typed command such as "atchange myprogram.c
'compile myprogram.c'".  By setting up atchange once before starting a
repetitive task, one can avoid hundreds of mouse movements.
