Triggering processes through Samba

I need to upload data from a barcode scanner into a Progress database
on UNIX. The barcode reader is attached to a PC. We have set it up in
this way that the barcode reader creates a file in a directory shared
by the PC and an HP box. A simple daemon on the HP scans the directory
and triggers a program to upload the data whenever it finds a file in
I was wondering if there isn't a more direct way of triggering a
process through Samba, so that I can get rid of the daemon.
Thanks for your help.
