New Feature Suggestion/ Windoze uses
First, Micro$oft windows users:

Note that this works OUT of the box from the zip file version on windoze. I personally leave it in the same directory on all my machines

C:\program files\util\dirsync

Second, it would be great if we could have a new option, say -l (or Log) which would take also imply a -v9. The -L(og) option would write a detailed log of all actions to a file named dirsync.MMYYDD or something similar...

This application is not a subset of rsync

because the purpose is different , is a small utility

that syncronize 2 directory not only on Unix

machine but also in Win32 and even MSDOS,

the main purpose is to mirror data from 2 system

for example one server and one notebook or

one production server and one backup server.

Oh, how did I miss that? Infact, now I think I need to check

this out as I might put it to use on a windoze box.

Because it's apparently only about 28k of source. o.O

It also looks like it's buildable on windows and linux, and

supports MSDoS (with only a makefile) which is a bit of

an accomplishment.

It also seems to be keeping with the unix philosophy of

"seprate small utilities that do only one thing very well",

granted, I don't know how well it's done, and there's no

license indication (buh?), but it looks like it could have

it's use for embedded purposes somehow (ie: An mp3

player that syncs with other mp3 players).

What is wrong with rsync?
Ok, I must admit I have not yet looked at the source but

from a glance it is just a lesser variant of rsync (http://

rsync.samba.org/)? Why re-invent the wheel?
