Well, it depends who you are. Are you the Finder? The Finder is a Carbon app
and probably does it by registering for the appropriate Carbon Event. Are
you a Cocoa app? A Cocoa app would likely do it by registering for an
NSWorkspace notification.


No polling ("cron job", as you call it) is involved.
