HFS-aware rsync
Authored by: ddulay on Oct 23, '02 11:56:39AM

Macosxlabs.org has been working on a port of rsync that is HFS-aware. Their description of this tool:

"RsyncX is an implementation of rsync with HFS+ support and configuration through a command line (Terminal) or graphical user interface. This release requires some form of SSH to be up and running. For full details on rsync, open a terminal window and enter 'man rsync'. This will introduce you to the theory behind the software. Be sure to read rsyncx_readme as well."
More information on RsyncX is available at http://www.macosxlabs.org/rsyncx/rsyncx.html.
I must confess that I have not played around with RsyncX too much because basic rsync is sufficient for my needs.
