# barebones reload-stuff-automatically script for sinatra on linux. In fact
# it doesn't actually restart, because that was causing me problems with socket
# reuse errors. Instead, in the spirit of Unix do-only-one-thing-and-do-it-well,
# it exits and lets the caller restart. You will need to adapt it to start your
# application, because it's currently hardcoded to start mine.
# The name "crossbow" is because it would lose in a fight with a shotgun. But it's
# not as loud.
