NAME

IO::BlockSync - Syncronize changed blocks

VERSION

Version 0.002

SYNOPSIS

BlockSync can some of the same stuff that bigsync (by Egor Egorov) can - it's just written in perl.

BlockSync copies data from source file to destination file (can be a block device) and calculates checksum on each block it copies. On all runs after the first only the changed blocks will be copied.

    use IO::BlockSync;

    # OOP way
    my $bs = IO::BlockSync->new(
        src => '/path/to/source/file',
        dst => '/path/to/destination/file',
        chk => '/path/to/chk/file',
    );
    $bs->run;

    # Non OOP way
    BlockSync(
        src => '/path/to/source/file',
        dst => '/path/to/destination/file',
        chk => '/path/to/chk/file',
    );

INSTALLATION

mandatory - string (containing path) or filehandle

dst

Destination file. If not set, then only checksum file will be updated.

optional - string (containing path) or filehandle

chk

Path to checksum file.

optional - sub - defaults to sub that return MD5 hash followed by newline

sparse

Seek in dst file, instead of writing blocks only containing \0
