rsync-bc (rsync backup client) is a stripped down version of rsync.
rsync-bc exists because I was afraid of putting the normal rsync binary
in the hands of ordinary users. I did not want to be liable when they
wiped all their disks by passing wrong options to rsync.
rsync-bc solves this by only allowing the user to push data to a server.
Receiving, local transfers, the daemon and server mode are disabled.
All destructive file operations have been removed from the binary.
rsync-bc will compile/run on the same platforms as the ordinary rsync,
however it is also possible to compile rsync-bc for Windows using the
mingw/msys toolkit. The mingw-patch below contains the changes required
that are mingw-specific. The zip file contains a binary that runs
under Windows 9x and above. No special dll:s are required.
The code is released under GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE.
Version 2.5.6-20031113/20031114 is the first release of rsync-bc.
