ZXPULL(1): pull changes for a replica
usage: zxpull [-Dabnuv] file -D: debug -a: all -b: blind -n: dry run -u: don't use unix out -v: verbose
DESCRIPTIONZxpull pulls changes from a remote tree into a local replica. It compares local and remote changes and decides which changes must be pushed and which ones must be pulled. The newest change wins if there is a conflicting change. File removes are noted and using the modification time for their directory. If a directory is added or removed, inner files and directories are added or removed as well no matter if the other replica has changes for such inner files. See zxrepl(1) for usage examples.
-a pulls all the changes from the remote
without paying attention to any local file or change made. This flag
is meant to initialize the file tree by making it equal to the remote
replica after the replica has been created, but it can be used at any
time and will discard all local changes in favor of the remote tree.
-b does not consider local changes when
pulling and propagates all changes made in the remote tree to the
If no argument is given, zxpull pulls all
replicas found at
When given, he file argument names the replica
and the database files. The replica is the basename for
file. The local database file is
file with "
appended. The remote database file is file with
.rdb" appended. If file
does not contain "
/u/lib/repl/" is prepended to it.
Metadata changes at the root of the replica are always ignored.
