camwatch is a very lightweight program for Unix / X Windows that fetches, displays, and optionally archives pictures from webcams.

It requires recent versions of imlib (not imlib2) and libcurl. I develop it under Red Hat Linux. I haven't intentionally put anything Linux-specific into it, but I don't test it anywhere else, and I'm not intimately familiar with the subtle differences between libc's and such, so YMMV.

camwatch works for me but poorly. It will probably work even worse for you. Let me know.

camwatch was originally written by 'cblack,' but his website has disappeared and his last known email address bounces. So, I've appropriated the project; if anyone knows this cblack and want to direct me to him, I'd love to get in touch and see if he wants it back or wants to pass it to me more formally.

There are big future plans for camwatch, but I tend to do things in fits and spurts, so I finally decided to call my hackings 'version 0.1' and release it, so here it is. Update: Another fit and spurt; version 0.2 exists now.

What's New in This Release:

� Fixed broken -s flag for selecting archive dir
� Fixed bug where window was showing image previous to current
� Made 's' keystroke save current image without forcing reload
� Made window auto-resize to the actual size of fetched image
� Added verify_image; currently only checks that filesize != 0
� Added version and filename to window title
