I've used mkfs(8) a lot, then clone(1), etc., but I really wanted to also be able to remove files no longer present (while not touching any mtimes for up-to-date stuff, etc.). After a bunch of iterations of scripts with diff(1) and others, I now use derp(1) together with the equivalent of dircp(1) and some awk . This prints two commands, one to remove files, the other to unpack new or modified ones. Of course, it's slow and has tar(1)'s filename length limit, but I kind of like it. I'm very interested in hearing about other solutions though :) Cheers and thanks for the post, qwx  http://shithub.us/qwx/rc/HEAD/bin/syncab/raw
