I am a student and have to make new directories a couple of times every week for each new task. So i need a way of automating this for subdirectories. Is it possible to set a folder action on a directory that has the task of setting a folder action on each new directory placed in it?

i like the idea of using launchd with watchpaths. Is this very resource consuming? Or does it actually do nothing until it is triggered? Also, is there a way to make the watchpaths command recursive?

I cant get the chflags to work recursively. I am doing this from the directory where I want all of its subfolders to be affected. I am going: chflags -R hidden *.dSYM but it says: *.dSYM isnt a directory. How can I make this command work recursively for all .dSYM files?

So would it affect the operation of cgdb if the .dSYM files are hidden or should it still function OK?

so you are suggesting to create a folder action that runs the bash code above everytime a file is added to one of my regular folders? do folder actions apply to subfolders of the folder that the action was applied to?
