in reply to Remote File Differential

There is an article at O'Reilly Linux Devcenter which may be of interest, since it describes a Perl script that uses rsync to make backups.

    Thanks for the help. Actually, I am very fimiliar with rsync (inside and out, you might say!) and have sort of outgrown it.

    What I was really looking for was the ability to have rsync functionality (remote file differentials) inside perl, without the need for the rsync binary.

    If anyone is interested, I have written an XS-based perl module around librsync, so I can do just that. I guess if anyone else cares about this kind of stuff I'll put it up on CPAN after some basic testing.

    Also, tadman -- on the side subject of web caching -- have you checked out rproxy? Very cool stuff.
