Compare directories via diff
Authored by: RalphLoizzo on Apr 10, '07 12:42:10PM

I use rsync alot myself to copy files from and to work. Any projects Im currently working on for an extended period of time get their own folder and rsynced between work and home.

Though Im usually good about rsyncing before I leave work or home, I forget occassionally.

So I dont accidentally overwrite any changes - I usually use the -n flag. That does a "dry run" of rsync showing possible changes without actually making them.
