[Bug 8682] New: Skip current transfer keyboard function

           Summary: Skip current transfer keyboard function
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: [hidden email]
        ReportedBy: [hidden email]
         QAContact: [hidden email]


rsync should stop transferring the active file upon press of a specific key.

There is already extensive file exclusion functionality, but the ability to
skip the current file (the one visible when using --progress) would be really
quite handy to have.

A hack is to save the file on the backedu up host, and overwrite the inode,
e.g. "echo > file". This will then cause BackupPC to move on and log an error.

But indeed, having the information about

  - which file is being processed
  - some metadata, e.g. size
  - when processing started

available in the web interface would be great. Ideally, this would then be
augmented with the ability to cancel/skip this file and optionally to add the
file or the containing directory to the global or host exclude list.

that would be a quite useful feature.

i`d recommend that this feature should be activated with a commandline option
for safety purpose. and skipping should then be repeated while the key is
pressed down, so one could skip multiple files at once or an entire directory
structure (e.g. when accidentally syncing /proc etc)
