rsync: rsync (a remote file sync utility)
rsync: rsync is a replacement for rcp with many more features. It uses
rsync: the "rsync algorithm" which provides a very fast method for
rsync: bringing remote files into sync. It does this by sending just the
rsync: differences in the files across the link, without requiring that both
rsync: sets of files are present at one of the ends of the link beforehand.
