[CLEARED] Best way to get rsync-like functionality

  • Hello.

    I was wondering if there's a class in Qt that can be used to sync to and from an ftp repository that will work in a similar fashion like rsync does, so that both sides are always in sync.

    I could use system calls to rsync itself, though it's probably not the most portable solution. It would be nice if there was a more qt-ish way around this, other than cooking my own.

    no there is no such feature in Qt.
    You can use use a "3rd-party lib": though.

  • I knew about that, but what I need would be rsync-like, not rsync (and I am not too confident in that lib being up to date anyway).

    The server only has ftp capabilities, as far as I know, and rsync doesn't support ftp by itself.

    Thank you anyway. I will look around a bit more and if no suitable solution appears then I'll have to hack my own. I just didn't want to reinvent the wheel :)
