Maybe you are working on a Marine Satellite network? </joke>

Fletch's humor notwithstanding, rsync is preferable to scp.

General advice: This adivce applies to any unix command line utility: You must first try at the command line after you read the man page.

Second, once the command works on the commmand line, then wrap it in a perl system call, with error checking. Add logging and stir gently.

This is not a cake

[oakbox]: Anyone else having difficulty looking at search.cpan.org?
[oakbox]: I keep getting a proxy error.
[marto]: try http://metacpan. org/
[marto]: I can't access search.cpan right now either. I prefer the metacpan search and general formatting anyway. Also it seems faster
[oakbox]: Yeah, the front page of cpan.org uses metacpan.org now for search results
