Hi, svetho!

I also needed a date-modified mode for rsync, so I don't think you missed something there.

I was downloading ISO files into various subdirectories of /home/me/isos and wanted to rsync occasionally, but didn't want to waste time on dirs I already had done.

I wrote a script that "touch"ed a file when it exited, to set the date it was last run. I don't have the code handy, but it went like:

$f = `find /home/me/isos -type f -iname '*iso' `; @imlist = split(/\n/,$f); $touchtime = -M ".touch_sem"; for $image (@imlist) { if ($touchtime <= -M "$image") { #rsync } } `touch .touch_sem `;

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
