Hi Samba-Folks,

it might be a feature request, it might the the proof that I'm too stupid
to find it in the documentation:

I'd like to execute a binary program on each file which gets stored or
modified on the samba server. Is that possible?

I'd like to store images on a samba server, and from each image stored a
thumbnail should be calculated. Thus, after a file is created/modified, I
need to call a program passing the path name of the stored/modified file
as a parameter.

You might as well think about calling a virus scanner on the file just

I know that this might be a performance issue, but that will be my problem
- not yours :-)

Thank you for your replies,
