I think scriptJob may be what you want, but it's better if you look it up in the docs. It's a bit of a thicket to explain.

Yes, a scriptjob is the way to do this, however you should know that they can slow down everything in the environment. You should try it to see whether you notice, but if it's bad, consider whether there might be another alternative.

I just recently ended up using one, here's the code I used. I know of the issues, but I did it anyway. Just make sure you attach it to something so it's not running when your not using it (like kill with scene or with a window)

int $pfSimpleScriptJobNum = `scriptJob -killWithScene -e "SelectionChanged" "checkSimpleSelection()"`;

global proc checkSimpleSelection()
string $sel[]=`ls -sl`;
if(!strcmp($sel[0], "polyChar"))
print "workin\n";
