extract is a utility for copying a set of files off one or more remote hosts into a set of local host trees. It's implemented using rsync.
extract requires the list of files to extract to be available either locally or on the remote machine. I typically use rpm-find-changes to generate a list of files to extract on remote RedHat/CentOS machines.
RPMs for RedHat/CentOS 5/6 are available from http://ofn.me/ofrepo.
Or you can run from a git checkout, as follows:
git clone https://github.com/gavincarr/extract/ cd extract cp conf/extract.conf.dist conf/extract.conf $EDITOR conf/extract.conf extract -c conf/extract.conf -v
See the config file (and
perldoc bin/extract) for documentation.
