digup is a console tool to update md5sum or shasum digest files. It will read existing digest files, check the current directory for new, updated, modified, renamed, or deleted files, and query the user with a summary of changes. After reviewing the updates, they can be written back to the digest file. This makes digup very useful to update and verify incremental archives like chronological data storages, which are commonly stored and backed up on hard disks. Using a full file digest scan, even slowly creeping bad blocks on old hard disks can be detected. By using a crontab entry, this check can be performed unattended and routinely.
Release Notes: Various changes and improvements. New command line options: --modify-window for larger time delta windows, --exclude-marker=file to skip directories with .nobackup marker files, and --restrict=substring to restrict scan via string matching. Fixes for problems with large files on mingw32.

It provides methods for interacting with MySQL databases that are more powerful and intuitive to use than PHP’s default ones. It supports transactions and provides ways for caching query results either by saving cached data on the disk, or by using memcache.The class provides a comprehensive debugging interface with detailed information about the executed queries: execution time, returned/affected rows, excerpts of the found rows, error messages, etc. It also automatically EXPLAIN‘s each SELECT query (so you don’t miss those keys again). It encourages developers to write maintainable code and provides a better default security layer by automatically escaping strings. Zebra_Database‘s code is heavily commented and generates no warnings, errors, or notices when PHP’s error reporting level is set to E_ALL.
