I read the documentation on and a co-worker posed this question:
How is it better than rdist? Are there benefits to using the Perl code over the built-in sync utility?
BTW... we use *NIX here.

    How is it better than rdist?
    Good question? It is written in Perl :-) but rdist users rlogin, and dupes the permissions which might be an easier to maintain solution. I note some other discussions here by fellow perlmonk corion mention rsync which could well be the way to go. This document summarizes the pro's and con's of rdisk v rsync. rsync seems to win hands down.
      Ok I'll look at rsync when I get in Monday and see if that'll be a good solution for us. Thanks.

      I still don't understand what autobundle does for me if I can't use it to install a module set. I update the production area only after all beta tests have finished. That could be a week or 5 depending on project scope.
