You can send it to the list or to me.
rsync is cygwin, activestate perl is not, so you have to use path
conversions, which are unnatural to both.
Easiest would be to use cygwin perl and get accustomed to POSIX paths
PS: rsync does incremental backups natively. I don't see the apparent
need for a perl driver. But even PAUSE uses a perl driver to rsync for
performance reasons with huge mirroring costs.
