Planned Copy

Ștefan Suciu 2016-12-07

Version: 0.911

Planned Copy - a smarter copy application for your Linux box. See the manual for details.


The easiest method is to download the latest binary package made with Cava Packager from the GitHub repository and then:

# chmod 755 planned-copy-linux-x86_64-0-XXX.bin
# cp planned-copy-linux-x86_64-0-XXX.bin /opt/
# cd /opt
# ./planned-copy-linux-x86_64-0-XXX.bin

Put /opt/planned-copy/bin/ in your PATH.

The second option is to download the source package from the GitHub repository and install like any other Perl package.

Download the distribution, unpack and install:

$ tar xaf App::PlannedCopy-0.NNN.tar.gz
$ cd App::PlannedCopy-0.NNN

Then as usual for a Perl application:

$ perl Makefile.PL
$ make
$ make test
$ make install

The third option is to clone the repository, build and install with dzil.

Known Issues

If the diff program is set to ignore whitespace, then when plcp reports differences, the diff program may report identical files.

If the destination path for an item is too long, it will alter the printing format.
