ftpgrab-0.0.3a - file mirroring utility
I wonder when/who will package this tool, it sounds useful.
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
This is the first public release of "ftpgrab". It may be obtained from
ftpgrab is a file mirroring utility, not dissimilar to Mirror. However its
primary feature is the ability to parse version numbers out of file name
strings. It is also aimed at smaller sites that will want to mirror
specific files rather than bulk copy remote directories.
This makes is possible to e.g. always have the latest linux kernel tarball
on your site, but without the hit of keeping older versions. ftpgrab is
capable of detecting that "linux-2.2.2.tar.gz" on the remote site is newer
than "linux-2.2.1.tar.gz" on the local disk, so it will download the new
version then delete the old local one.
Please consider ftpgrab to be ALPHA software. Take this to mean that lots
of planned features aren't yet implemented. Also, only myself has used it
so there will be bugs. However if you are brave enough to try it, expect
me to help and/or fix bugs as your reward
ftpgrab is GPL licence. You will probably have better luck on a glibc
distribution with egcs as your c++ compiler.
