Node.js watchFile error. "Undefined is not a function"

I am new to Node.js and I am trying to run simple Node.js code.

I have Node.js windows binary.v0.5.8

here is my js code.

var fs = require("fs"); fs.readFile('message.text', 'utf8', function (err,data) { if (err) { return console.log(err); } console.log(data); }); fs.watchFile('message.text',function (curr, prev) { console.log('the current mtime is: ' + curr.mtime); console.log('the previous mtime was: ' + prev.mtime); });

When I keep only the readFile in the code it runs smoothly. But gives following error on watchfile.

C:\Users\GG\Labs\NodeJS>node.exe test.js node.js:208 throw e; // process.nextTick error, or 'error' event on first tick ^ TypeError: undefined is not a function at new StatWatcher (fs.js:596:18) at Object.watchFile (fs.js:648:37) at Object.<anonymous> (C:\Users\GG\Labs\NodeJS\test.js:25:4) at Module._compile (module.js:425:26) at Object..js (module.js:443:10) at Module.load (module.js:344:31) at Function._load (module.js:303:12) at Array.<anonymous> (module.js:463:10) at EventEmitter._tickCallback (node.js:200:26)

Any idea????
