NAME

       rdiffdir - compute and apply signatures and diffs to directories

SYNOPSIS

       rdiffdir [options] sig[nature] basis_dir signature_file

       rdiffdir [options] delta signature_file new_dir delta_file

       rdiffdir [options] patch basis_dir delta_file

       rdiffdir [options] tar basis_dir tar_file

       If  signature_file  or  delta_file are "-", the data will be read from stdin or written to
       stdout as appropriate.

DESCRIPTION

       rdiffdir is supposed to be like rdiff, but can operate on directories.  See  rdiff(1)  for
       more information.  The syntax is similar.

OPTIONS

       --write-sig-to sigfile
              This  option  is  only  used in delta and tar modes.  When specified, rdiffdir will
              write a signature of the directory it is processing to  sigfile.   The  end  result
              will be a delta and a new signature calculated over the same data.

       -z, --gzip-compress
              Enable gzip compression and decompression of signature and delta files.

SELECTION OPTIONS

       In  signature and delta modes, rdiffdir accepts duplicity-like selection options including
       --exclude, --exclude-filelist-stdin, etc.  See  the  duplicity(1)  manual  page  for  more
       information.

BUGS

       Hard links are currently unsupported (they will be treated as non-linked regular files).

       Bad signatures will be treated as empty instead of logging appropriate error message.
