Changetrack is a program to monitor changes to system files. If files are modified one day, and the system starts working incorrectly a few days later, changetrack can provide information on which files were modified and help locate the problem. Changetrack will also allow recovery of the files at any stage. Changes to each file can be mailed to a list of email addresses or presented in a Web-based form or as a text file. The program makes human-readable output, and uses RCS to allow recovery of the files from any stage.
