Hi All

If rsync gets files from standard input, when it starts to process that
file, immediately or read until EOF, or somewhere in between?

For example, if a list is generated slowly but continuously and keep
feeding to rsync, will rsync wait a very long time before ever handling
the first file?

Is this behavior controllable?


never so busy...
