[Bug 12781] New: rsync library

Samba - rsync mailing list
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12781

            Bug ID: 12781
           Summary: rsync library
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.3
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
          Assignee: [hidden email]
          Reporter: [hidden email]
        QA Contact: [hidden email]

I suggest the feature was requested for tens of times before me. But I couldn't
find it in the Bugzilla.
RSync as the protocol may be useful to many other applications. There even is a
librsync (https://github.com/librsync/librsync) which is used by a few
applications, yet that librsync is incompatible with this rsync
Do you think it's possible to create an API and extract the library out of the
rsync code?

--- Comment #1 from Axel Kittenberger <[hidden email]> ---
I asked exactly this 10 years ago to the mailing list.

The answer was no.

This is not a simple to do.

You could do it, I decided that kind of project would move me too far away from
what I actually wanted to achieve. I went instead for calling rsync from a
daemon and handing data via pipes. ( https://github.com/axkibe/lsyncd ). You
just need some process management.
