The bogocopy package

[maintain]

Copies a directory tree, preserving permissions and modification times, but making zero-size sparse copies of big files. See the README file. Usage: bogocopy [-v|--verbose] (-s|--size SIZE_MB) SRCDIR DSTDIR > copy a directory tree, preserving permissions and modification times, but > making zero-size sparse copies of big files > > `DSTDIR` will be created. Available options: `-h,--help` > Show this help text `--v,--verbose` > Verbose (debugging) output `--s,--size SIZE_MB` > Size limit, files leq to this size (in MB) are real-copied, those above are not. ### Bugs and limitations - Limited to unix-like systems - Uses the `rsync` and `cp` commands at run-time - Won't preserve the "ctime" (inode change time) of a node - Tested in only a desultory fashion, use at your own risk
