+Mirror is a package written in Perl that uses the ftp protocol to
+duplicate a directory hierarchy between the machine it is run on and a
+remote host. It avoids copying files unnecessarily by comparing the
+file timestamps and sizes before transfering. Amongst other things
+can optionally compress, gzip, and split files.
