NAME
       rdiffdir	- compute and apply signatures and diffs to directories

SYNOPSIS
       rdiffdir	[options] sig[nature] basis_dir	signature_file

       rdiffdir	[options] delta	signature_file new_dir delta_file

       rdiffdir	[options] patch	basis_dir delta_file

       rdiffdir	[options] tar basis_dir	tar_file

       If  signature_file  or  delta_file  are "-", the	data will be read from
       stdin or	written	to stdout as appropriate.

DESCRIPTION
       rdiffdir	is supposed to be like rdiff, but can operate on  directories.
       See rdiff(1) for	more information.  The syntax is similar.

OPTIONS
       --write-sig-to sigfile
	      This  option  is	only used in delta and tar modes.  When	speci-
	      fied, rdiffdir will write	a signature of	the  directory	it  is
	      processing to sigfile.  The end result will be a delta and a new
	      signature	calculated over	the same data.

       -z, --gzip-compress
	      Enable gzip compression and decompression	of signature and delta
	      files.

SELECTION OPTIONS
       In signature and	delta modes, rdiffdir accepts duplicity-like selection
       options including --exclude, --exclude-filelist-stdin,  etc.   See  the
       duplicity(1) manual page	for more information.

BUGS
       Hard  links  are	 currently  unsupported	 (they will be treated as non-
       linked regular files).

       Bad signatures will be treated as empty instead of logging  appropriate
       error message.
