smd-server(1) sends diffs and mails to smd-client


smd-server [--exclude glob] [-v|--verbose] [-d|--dry-run]
[--get-mddiff-cmdline] [--stop-after-diff]
[--override-db dbf] [--dump-stdin tgt] endpoint mailboxes


smd-server needs to know a name (endpoint) for the client (that must not be used by others) and a list of mailboxes (directories).

smd-server first calls mddiff(1), then prints on stdout the generated diff. It then accepts from stdin a small set of commands a client may issue to request a file (or parts of it, like the header).

smd-server is in charge of committing the db file used by mddiff(1) in case the client communicates a successful sync.


-v --verbose
Increase program verbosity (printed on stderr)
-d --dry-run
Do not perform any action for real
-n --no-delete
Do not track deleted files
--exclude glob
Exclude paths matching glob
--override-db dbf
Use dbf as the db-file
Print the command line used for mddiff and then exist
Send the actions to the other endpoint and exit. If used in conjunction with --override-db, dbf is removed just before exiting
--dump-stdin tgt
Dump standard input to tgt and exit


smd-server is a low level utility. You should use higher level tools like smd-pull(1) and smd-push(1)
