AntFlow builds upon Apache Ant to provide a new approach to simplifying system automation that uses pipelines of hot folders chained together to perform a given task. Using XML, it associates an automated task such as data transfer, encryption, or XML processing with a directory on the local system. Whenever a file is copied or written into the hot folder, the associated task is executed and the file is moved to the next hot folder in the pipeline for further processing.
Revert sets back timestamps on files if they have not changed. If a source file has identical content to a destination file but the destination's modification time is newer, the mtime is set back to the same as the source. This can save time when using make(1) and generated files, for example. Usage is like cp(1).
