{name} ←  ⎕SE.Link.Notify args

When synchonisation is active, Link will call Notify each time it detects a change to a linked source file. If synchronisation is not enabled, you can use this function to bring an external change into the active workspace, to notify the link system that an external file has changed.

If the workspace and directories become un-synchronised, you are probably better off using Link.Resync to get a list of differences, or Link.Refresh to completely re-load the external source.
