Swatch is designed to monitor system activity. It reads a configuration file which contains pattern(s) to look for and action(s) to perform when each pattern is found. A typical action is echoing the matched line in a variety of colours and formats including reverse video, bold, underline, and normal, which swatch knows how to do internally. Other actions include sending mail or executing an arbitrary program on the line. Swatch is written in Perl and uses Perl regular expressions for line matching.

    2001-10-30 - Rene Weber <rene_debmaint@elvenlord.com> swatch (3.0.3-1) unstable; urgency=low * New upstream release. (Fixes some internal bugs.) * Documented PERLCODE directive in man page. * Added "threshold" directive with documentation. * Am finally releasing these modifications after receiving word from the upstrem author that they (or a work-alike) will be included with the release of swatch. * Fixed Build-Depends problem (changed to Build-Depends-Indep).

    2001-10-10 - Rene Weber <rene_debmaint@elvenlord.com> swatch (3.0.2-2) unstable; urgency=low * Fixed custom code (PERLCODE directive) so that multiple uses of it actually work (instead of clobbering each other).

    2001-07-16 - Rene Weber <rene_debmaint@elvenlord.com> swatch (3.0.2-1) unstable; urgency=low * Initial Release. (Closes: #105247) * Includes custom code (PERLCODE directive in config file) not in upstream and not documented except for in the source. Upstream has not responded to me yet, so it is not integrated there yet. Barring strenuous objection from upstream, I intend to preserve the PERLCODE directive in future releases and document it, but for now it is undocumented because its future is not known.
