revised Script to monitor folder for new files?
Two simplifications and an improvement: Used the builtin event filter. Used multiple `read` arguments to isolate the filename. Included move_to as an event filter because files have 2 ways of getting into a folder.

comment Script to monitor folder for new files?
@Lugoues and now when you try to use -f you get The '--filename' option no longer exists. The option it enabled in earlier versions of inotifywait is now turned on by default. So, you only have to do inotifywait -m /path -e create | I'm going to try and edit this answer.
