comment Any way to sync directory structure when the files are already on both sides?
@Gilles. Good to know -- there seems to be quite a few places where the algorithm distinguishes between local and remote syncs. I actually didn't think it would work for first sync. +1 for unison!

comment Any way to sync directory structure when the files are already on both sides?
@Dan. Sorry. The problem is that I don't know what assumptions I can make about your file names. Scripting without assumptions is no fun, especially in this case where I chose to output the file names to a file dwheeler.com/essays/fixing-unix-linux-filenames.html .

comment Any way to sync directory structure when the files are already on both sides?
@Gilles: Are you sure? I use unison for everything and often see it spotting files that have been renamed and/or moved far away. Are you saying that this only works for already synced files where unison has had a chance to record inode numbers (or whatever other tricks it uses)?

comment Is there a scripting language with C-like syntax?
+1 for CINT: It is part of the awesome ROOT framework which is used for most of the data processing at CERN, so you know it will be actively developed for a while to come.

How about screen + buobu?: launchpad.net/byobu, and maybe kmandla.wordpress.com/2010/01/03/… for screenshots

I'll need the authentication. Plain could work, but StartTLS would probably be nice. But installing postfix seems like it would be massive overkill?!

Thanks. Yes, I want to avoid var to keep the disk idle. You are right about tmpfs of course, but I'd like to keep it as simple as possible...

Thanks. Seems nullmailer does queuing in /var which is something I want to avoid. l3jane.net/cgi-bin/man/man2html?8+nullmailer-send . Now I got googling, so I'll expand the question with a few alternatives :)
