A program for synchronizing files over a network
Rsync uses a reliable algorithm to bring remote and host files into
sync very quickly. Rsync is fast because it just sends the differences
in the files over the network instead of sending the complete
files. Rsync is often used as a very powerful mirroring process or
just as a more capable replacement for the rcp command. A technical
report which describes the rsync algorithm is included in this
WHAT IS RSYNC?
Rsync is a fast and extraordinarily versatile file copying tool for
both remote and local files.
Rsync uses a delta-transfer algorithm which provides a very fast method
for bringing remote files into sync. It does this by sending just the
differences in the files across the link, without requiring that both
sets of files are present at one of the ends of the link b
