searching for a application ???
 
is there a program that could watch other programs and additional files that particular program uses.

so that i know wich files that program accessed, like configs and modules it uses.

i need to find out wich files are in use (read/write access) by a particular program

i hope you guys understand what i need.

fuser may well do what you want. it's a core part of any normal distro, so you'll already have it.

almost :D
 
example:
i start kdewrite.
Now kdewrite loads itself, and a few modulles, makes a tempfile, and opens a new document.

now i need a program that reports me those things.

something like this

/bin/kde/kdewrite
----------kdewrite - rwe
/mod/lib/
----------kdewwrit.so - rxx
----------libkde.so - rxx
----------libexp.so - rxx
/usr/local/tmp/
----------tempfile.tmp - rwx
/usr/local/kde/
----------newdoc.txt - rwx

So i know what access kdewrite had to other files (write/read/execute)

hope i made it clear now, and thanx for your reaction.
