It means the file content but the means by which this is detected is 
very implementation specific. For example one could poll the file 
modification time to detect that something has changed or you could get 
events from the platform to indicate that it has changed. A change to a 
file attribute may also trigger an ENTRY_MODIFY event, again this is 
implementation specific.
