NAME

File::Copy::Reliable - file copying and moving with extra checking

SYNOPSIS

  use File::Copy::Reliable;
  copy_reliable( $source, $destination );
  move_reliable( $source, $destination );

DESCRIPTION

File::Copy is an excellent module which handles copying and moving files. File::Copy::Reliable provides an extra level of checking after the copy or move. This might be useful if you are copying or moving to unreliable network fileservers.

At the moment this checks that the file size of the copied or moved file is the same as the source.

The exported functions throw exceptions if there was an error.
