Perl Mirror Script

Perl program to mirror a set of directories with a list of exclusions.

Yes, I know that there are other tools out there, and I am especially aware of rsync, but there was a need for a PERL-based mirror tool. I wrote one that only copies the file if the size is different or the source timestamp is newer than the destination timestamp. It works extra-well if it is copying to/from the same filesystem or when the filesystems have the same time.

Download it as and you'll likely want to save it as It requires the PERL module File::Copy. Open up and make sure that the $Source and $Dest parameters are set up.
