How is this different from find?
I'm curious how 'rdup' is different from the 'find' command, which can trivially print out a list of files modified since the date on some arbitrary timestamp file:
find . -type f -newer .lastbackup -print
You simply 'touch .lastbackup' whenever you successfully complete your backup. The description for rdup makes it sound like it's doing pretty much the same thing...but some of the comments on the different releases imply that it actually has some additional features. Maybe just the description needs updating?
Use the source?
Have you looked at this source code? My god, man,
why even bother writing in C if you're going to
re#define the entire language? If you're looking
for brevity, try APL, but if you're going to share
your code with the rest of the world, have the
common decency to make sure the rest of us can
