Mirror was designed to duplicate a directory hierarchy between two machines. It avoids copying files unnecessarily by comparing the file time-stamps and file sizes before transferring. Mirror was writen by Lee McLoughlin <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
The latest version is Mirror 2.9 which will run on Un*x, Wind*ws
95 and Wind*ws NT. Its sole requirement is Perl 4, or better
still, Perl 5.
