SNAPSHOT-DIR(1C)					      SNAPSHOT-DIR(1C)

NAME
       snapshot-dir - create a snapshot	database of a directory	tree

SYNOPSIS
       snapshot-dir  [-vN]  directory  [directory...]  [:output=database-name]
       [:old=database-name] [:devcross=true]

DESCRIPTION
       snapshot-dir

       Finds all files in the directory, recursively, and writes to the	[data-
       base-name]  or  to standard output a description	of each	file including
       name, file modes, sizes,	dates, and an MD5 checksum of each  REG	 file,
       and the contents	of each	symbolic link.

       The database can	be further processed by	other programs that can	deter-
       mine what has changed in	a file system.

       The directory arguments can also	be regular file	names.

       The -v argument lets you	specify	a verbosity level.

       If :old=database-name is	given then the old database will be used as  a
       cache  of md5 values. The md5 of	a regular file will only be recomputed
       for files which have been apparently changed according to the operating
       system  reported	 status. Programs can of course	modify a file and then
       set the status values back, so do not use this technique	 during	 secu-
       rity audits.

       If :devcross=false is specified then all	entries	which do not reside on
       the same	"device" as the	starting directory will	be  ignored.  This  is
       useful  for  creating a snapshot	that can be compared with a filesystem
       backup tape.
