**-h, --help** output usage information
**-V, --version** output the version number
**-e, --filter <expr>** Notifies only when a file matching the filter changes. Useful when watching directories
**-r, --run <cmd>** Runs the given command when a change notice is generated
**-f, --file <file>** Watches this file|directory for changes
Specifying a file to watch is required (the `--file` option).
The `--filter` expression is a regular expression (with 2 expceptions; read on). The dots (.) in the expression will be escaped to be used as a literal dot. The asterisks (*) in the expression will be converted to `.*` (match all selector). This is done for convenience.
nwatch --file . --filter "*.(jade|styl)" --run build-web
assuming `build-web` is an executable script.
