cengineer has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello,

I have a storage server where data is updated on an hourly basis. I'm using File::RsyncP on a remote server to collect the new data for processing. I want to get the list of files transferred so that I can process only the new files, but I'm having trouble getting this listing. It looks like it can be done with File::RsyncP::FileList, but I'm not quite sure how to use it in my code.

Any ideas? Thank you much in advance!
use strict; use warnings; use File::RsyncP; my $rs = File::RsyncP->new({ logLevel => 1, rsyncCmd => "/bin/rsync", rsyncArgs => [ "--numeric-ids", "--perms", "--owner", "--group", "--devices", "--links", "--ignore-times", "--block-size=700", "--relative", "--recursive", "-v", ], }); my $port = 873; my $host = "storage.server"; my $module = "reports"; my $destDirectory = "/home/incoming/"; $rs->serverConnect($host, $port); $rs->serverService($module, 0, 0, 0); $rs->serverStart(1, "."); $rs->go($destDirectory); $rs->serverClose;
