rsync for DOS

I have recently completed a port of rsync to DOS. It is compiled using 
Borland C 3.1 to run in real-mode DOS (because my target was a hand-held 
computer with little memory). There are a few compromises, for example 
it is client only, it does not support rsh or ssh and the file names on 
the server must be in DOS format if they are to be sync'd correctly. 
There is more information and a link to the code at . Hope someone finds this useful
