I really want to know how rsync works.
Once it synchronize a file. Does rscync first create a temporary in the
remote machine first and then rename it? Or it direct write the difference
into the dest-file?

Could you please tell me what will happen to the dest-file when a rsync
process interrupted by some problems(network problem etc ...)?

Thanks for your help

Best Regards
